Just like many things, the COVID-19 pandemic took this event away from us in years past. Finally, with a lot of excitement, the St. Sophia Greek Cultural Festival is returning to Central New York.

Back, And In Person

Sure, you can find much of the food served all over Central New York. There are tons of delicious places for Gyros and other delectable Greek dishes. Nothing quite beats going to a festival celebrating everything greek and putting way too much tzatziki on that gyro though.

Way Different Than Last Year's Festivities

It sure will be amazing seeing as last year the event was on, but very limited due to the pandemic. In 2021 it was purely a drive-thru style event.

What To Expect

Dance to the Greek Music, chow down on the Greek food, and enjoy some very scrumptious desserts that are also very Greek. You're getting the point. Expect a full-fledged authentic Greek event. Nothing can beat the sights you'll take in, the smells filling the air, and all the fun.

Some Things Remain Completely The Same

If you attended one of the St. Sophias Greek Cultural Festivals in the past, the location is no different for 2022. The event is taking place June 9th through 12th this year at  the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in Syracuse.
