August 19-August 21: Omaha’s Original Greek Festival

Canfields Plaza, 8457 West Center Road,, $25/food tickets.

Opa! Omaha’s Original Greek Festival is back and this year we can expect more of the same compliments of St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church. One yearly highlight is a variety of Greek folk dances. You can witness dances from St. John’s dance groups or learn to dance Greek at various times during the weekend. There will also be live Greek entertainment on hand in the form of To Kefi, a new Texas’ Greek band. Their repetoire is a fusion of the latest hits from Greece and of traditional songs. Finally, no Greek festival would be complete without Greek food and drink. The main courses offered are Pork Souvlaki and Gyro, both served with Tzatziki Sauce on Pita bread. There will also be Greek desserts and Greek beer. With such a variety of entertainment options there is no reason not to come out and be Greek for a day.
