Oh the gyro, how we love a good gyro!
Greek Festivals celebrate Greek culture and are presented by many ethnic Greek American communities and organizations in the United States, particularly Greek Orthodox churches. Attendees can sample Greek cuisine, music, and dance at the events that are often fundraisers for Orthodox churches of the Greek Archdiocese.
The Poughkeepsie Greek Festival is a bi-annual celebration (Summer and Fall) of the food, music, and culture of the Hellenic people hosted for over 40 years at the Kimisis Greek Orthodox Church. We always look forward to attending this event and having a delicious gyro!
