Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church celebrated its 40th Annual Greek Festival in Waterbury, Connecticut from May 10-13. The Greater Waterbury Greek-American Community organized and participated in the four-day event with dances, songs and tons of food.
Greek children of the Community performed traditional Greek dances and taught attendees what Greek heritage really means.
But a Greek festival would be nothing without local cuisine, so a full course meal was offered in a tent taverna at affordable prices. Gyros, Spanakopita, Psari Plaki and Baklava were just some of the community’s best dishes.
During the event, people had the opportunity to visit the Holy Trinity church to admire the beautiful mosaics and stained glass windows. On May 13, Mother’s Day, members of the Greek community had the chance to buy hanging baskets and flowers for their mothers.
Icons and jewelry were also for sale. On Thursday, May 10, young dancers performed Greek Folk Dances.
It was an amazing event, and people exclaimed they can’t wait to attend again next year!
