Food, Festivities & Fun at Greek Food Fest

Kerry Kraus

May 21-23
is a stellar weekend in Little Rock for those who love good and not-your-everyday food with the 26th Annual International Greek Food Festival taking place. According to organizers, the festival, held at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, is the largest ethnic event in the state.
A huge variety of foods homemade by church members with Greek, Armenian, Georgian, Romanian, Russian, Indian, Middle Eastern, English and American backgrounds makes this a not-to-be-missed festival.
In addition to the food there is a golf tournament, tours of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, entertainment, a kids’ area, and the Old World Market. The church is located at 1100 Napa Valley Drive and the event is all three days. Visit the festival Website for a detailed schedule of events and additional information or call 501-221-5300.
What’s the tastiest Greek dish you’ve had?

    I went a few years ago and LOVED it. They had wonderful food and the old world market was great!

    Another great festival will be held May 16 at the River Market! It’s the Jewish Food Festival. Admission is free, and we will be open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

    On sale will be homemade traditional baked goods, blintzes, potato pancakes (latkes), mile-high corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, falafel, bagels and much more at prices ranging from $3 to $8.

    All of this ethnic food will be served amid traditional music and dance, art and cultural booths and children’s activities.

    Parking is terrible. This event needs to move to the parking lot at the new Pramenade Shopping Center on Chenal Parkway.

    Hi Samantha,

    Thanks for the reminder about the Jewish Food Festival. I also wrote a blog on that as well. You can find it in my archive dated April 27. Look for this title: Cultural Extravaganza in Little Rock

    Good luck!
