The Denver Greek Fest rolls into town this Friday and ends on Sunday, Father’s Day. Friday and Saturday the fun runs from 11am to 11pm and Sunday from 11am to 8pm. There will be live entertainment; dancing, choirs and singing. Start fasting to make room for your favorite homemade Greek foods and pastries, as they will be in abundance.
Gifts like original works of art, gold and silver jewelry, authentic Greek merchandise and breathtaking photography will be available for purchase, so don’t leave Dad hanging on Father’s day.
Their entertainment lineup is too voluminous to mention, to see a complete list, click here: http://www.thegreekfestival.com/
For a fourth straight year The Greek Festival and the Assumption of the Theotokos Metropolis Cathedral of Denver are generously donating a portion of Festival profits to charity. This year’s charity is the Denver Children’s Home, Denver’s oldest nonprofit. For the last 135 years, the Denver’s Children’s home has cared for abused, neglected, and traumatized youth. Other charities benefiting from the 2010 Festival are: The St. Nicholas Church of New York City (lost in the 9/11 tragedy) and Families First, a resource center for families. Bonfils Blood Center will also be at the Festival to take blood donations.
The Greek Fest takes place on the property surrounding the Greek Orthodox Metropolis Cathedral of Denver, at Alameda and Dahlia. There is a cost for admittance, although minimal. My personal limit is $3, however last year, I believe it was less than $2 to get in. Purchase coins to buy home made festival yummies.
There is parking in the lower lot near the East Gate and on Colorado Blvd and Alameda at the Target Parking where shuttles will run throughout the day. Valet parking is available for $5 in the upper lot at the Metropolis Center.
