Summer Festivals in Greece!

The summer season is filled with festivals in Greece. From the smallest of villages to the urban cities, people gather at churches and town centers to celebrate many religious holidays and Saint's days. The biggest of such festivals occurs on August 15th, when everyone takes time to honor and celebrate the Virgin Mary. Whether it's visiting a local church to light a candle or roasting a lamb or pig for a delicious dinner, everyone acknowledges the significance of this day as it is the 3rd most celebrated religious holiday in Greece, after Easter and Christmas. The festivals typically last all day long, with lots of wonderful food, dancing, live music and fun!

Time to Cool Off!

Finally, as the warm weather comes to town, enjoy a delicious meal in our air conditioned dining room. But, to really treat yourself, order a refreshing beverage from our Summer Cocktail Menu.

From a sweet blueberry iced tea, to a tart lemonada made with fresh lemon juice to a just-peachy concoction, these drinks are a great way to cool down and relax.
