As always, this year’s three-day event will include tours of the Byzantine church, and the Run for Change 26.2-mile fundraising run. All proceeds from the race this year, which kicks off at Tivoli Village, will benefit the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth.But it’s really the welcoming spirit and warm cultural exchange that keeps the festival going strong year after year, and keeps attracting new families to the event. “It’s a way for us to show our culture,” Flangas says.“People like the food, but they also love the dancing and come for that, too. It’s a very lively event,” says organizer and publicist Marilyn Flangas. “You’ll see young people climbing on the tables to dance, like they do in Greece.” The food is legendary at this festival, including our favorite, grilled chicken or pork souvlaki wrapped in warm pita and doused with tzatziki, and Flangas’ fave, beef and rice-stuffed grape leaves with a squeeze of lemon known as dolmathes.

The annual event held at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Spring Valley was likely the first food fest founded in Las Vegas, and it’s celebrating 49 years dishing up delicious spanakopita, saganaki, gyros and honey-kissed baklava with generous sides of music, dancing and family-friendly fun.Beloiannisz is a village in Fejér county, Hungary. It was founded by Communist Greek refugees who left Greece after the civil war, and was named after Nikos Beloyannis (Beloiannisz is the Hungarian spelling of his name).In Vienna, for many centuries, the Griechenviertel (Greek quarter) existed in the Innere Stadt (inner town). Later the Greek community moved to other newer quarters. A traditional Austrian restaurant there is called Griechenbeisl (Greek tavern) and a street Griechengasse (Greek lane).Many Greeks reside in Wood Green, Harringay and Palmers Green, the latter harbouring the largest community of Greek-Cypriots outside Cyprus, resulting in these areas bearing local nicknames whereby the Green is replaced by Greek – as in Greek Lanes and Palmers Greek. Although in recent years, most of London’s Greek and Greek-Cypriot population resides in Southgate. Yaghdan, is a village in the Lori Province of Armenia. It has a majority of Greeks. The Alaverdi province in Armenia is mainly inhabited by ethnic Armenians with a minor Greek community that was once considered the largest in Armenia. The Greeks in Armenia speak the Pontic dialect and they are fluent in both Armenian and Russian. The Madan neighbourhood of Alaverdi used to have a large Greek community during the Soviet period.The term Greektown is not widely used in Australia, even in areas with comparatively high levels of Greek concentration. In the 1860s, a shanty town referred to as Greektown was established at Tambaroora near Bathurst in New South Wales. Bayswater is also home to a substantial Greek community. The Saint Sophia Cathedral, situated on Moscow Road was built in 1882, and is a grade I listed building. A typical housing pattern found in United States’ Greektowns is to buy a multiple story dwelling, move into the lower floor and rent the upper floors to other Greeks.Looking for something Fun and Free to do this summer?\u00a0 Wawa has you covered with complimentary admission to Bok Tower Gardens the last Thursday and Friday of the month from […]
