Panigiri Fest 2017 | Fall Greek Festival

September 15 @ 4:00 pm - September 17 @ 4:00 pm

Join the Greek Orthodox Community of Windsor for Panigiri Fest at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church on September 15-17, 2017.

The Greek community invites you to their Fall Festival in celebration of their church’s name day (Holy Cross).

“According to Greek Orthodox tradition, nearly every day of the year is dedicated to some Christian saint or martyr. When someone in Greece is named after one of these saints, that saint’s celebration day becomes their “name day” and is celebrated much like their actual birthday.”

Panigiri is the Greek word for Festival.

Enjoy souvlaki on a stick, Grecian fries, spinach pies, cheese pies, baklava – and, of course, their famous honeyballs. Cold beer will be available on tap.

The 3 day Panigiri will be lots of fun for the whole family.

Festival Hours:

Friday: 4pm to 11pm
Saturday: 12pm to 11pm
Sunday: 12pm to 4pm

Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church is located at 65 Elis Street E. in Windsor, Ontario.
