Thursday Evening Soft Kickoff -- 5 to 9pm! In 2018 we hosted a limited opening on Thursday evening and had such a great response we are bringing it back this year. Because this is a soft opening only Greek Dinners & Salads, Lamb Plates, Pastries, Grocery Items, Wine and Beer, and a few other specialty items will be available for sale. This Early Bird event is cash only, $5 admission at the gate (no online tickets available).
When you attend the New Orleans Greek Festival you not only enjoy the great Greek Food, Culture, and Family Fun that we've shared with New Orleans for over forty years, but you also support a church community that has been in New Orleans for over 150 years!
