Opa! St. Nicholas Greek Fest Is Back, In Person, Saturday and Sunday


OAK LAWN, IL — After two years of going express with Greek-to-go cuisine, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church’s Greek Fest returns in Oak Lawn June 18 and June 19, along with the dancing, live entertainment and famous cuisine. The fest runs from 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday, and 2 to 10 p.m. Sunday.

St. Nick’s Greek Fest is a summer tradition and features some of the best cuisine of outdoor festivals in the south suburbs. The St. Nicholas Ladies Philoptochos Society has food prep down to a science, making their famous baklava, featured on WGN’s “Chicago’s Best,” with a dedicated crack grill team firing up the shish kabob. Festgoers can enjoy plates full of tasty souvlaki, Greek chicken, gyros, pastitsio (“Greek lasagna”), spanakopita, Greek pastries and more. Two bars will be available to serve up libations.

The church will be raffling off cash prizes, including a $5,000 grand prize, and second prize of $2,000 and $1,500 third prize. Tickets are $100 and the winner need not be present.

Strung Out brings its ultimate 70s experience to the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday, with the GreekBeats performing at 2 p.m. Sunday. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 10301 S. Kolmar Ave., Oak Lawn, has been hosting Greek Fest for over 50 years. For more information, call 708-436-5460.
