Greek and Other Ethic Foods Shine This Weekend

You might want to watch your caloric intake this week because an abundance of food is going to be available at the 28th Annual International Greek Food Festival, May 18-20 in Little Rock. If you do, then you’ll have more room for all the tasty treats offered this weekend. Various culinary traditions include Greek, Armenian, Georgian, Romanian, Russian, Indian, Middle Eastern, English and a dash of American dishes. In addition, music, dance and other cultural traditions are explored as well. A special kid’s area features face painting, a candy walk, a climbing wall, rides and grilled hot dogs.

The indoor Old World Market has an ethnic grocery, frozen dinners to go, pastries, Stavriana jewelry, and other items. Guided tours of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church are also scheduled. Everything takes place at the church, located at 1100 Napa Valley Drive in Little Rock. The event website has a complete schedule of activities or phone 501-221-5300.
