2016 Greek Food Festival Thanks!

Once again the Annunciation Greek Food Festival treated Newburyport and all it's visitors during Yankee Homecoming week to our delicious homemade Greek cusine. THANK YOU to all of you who worked so diligently in the workshops, planning and preparation for the Greek Food Festival, and of course, your hard work during GFF weekend.

The Gyro Cart was an amazing new addition to the week thanks to the efforts of John Tsakirgis & Daphne Tikellis (and their volunteers) who worked above and beyond the call of duty during the 9 day effort including all of the preparation and clean-up work.

Join us on Sunday, Sept. 11th following Divine Liturgy for a Greek Food Festival Feedback Meeting.  We welcome all suggestions and ideas on how we can improve our festival for future years.  If you are unable to attend, please feel free to contact Jim Sperelakis with your input at (978)479-6372 or
