The Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Vestal holds their Greek Festival at the beginning of summer every year. The four-day Festival is usually held at the church on O'hara Drive, just off Old Vestal Road and draws thousands of people for the great Greek food, music, and dancing.

Every year, Chris, Ian, and I go to the festival at least once, to enjoy the food, the Greek beer and wine, and we try and time it out so we can see some of the Greek dancers showing off their moves.

Earlier this year, the Coronavirus pandemic caused the Greek Fest to be canceled. At that time the church said they were hoping to be able to at least do a drive-thru event later on this year. That event is going to take place this Friday from noon until 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the church.

They are going to have the same delicious authentic Greek food and pastries that they serve every year during the Greek festival. Great authentic Greek dishes like spanakopita, moussaka, baklava, gyros, Greek salads, and when it comes to pastries, the awesome Honey Puffs.

The church said they are going to be following the CDC guidelines for food service, and ask customers to stay in their car and wear a mask.

Opa! Enjoy some Greek food while helping out the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation this Friday and Saturday in Vestal.
