The weather in Northwest Indiana is perfect for an outdoors fest like this one. Dine alfresco or inside, as you wish. Most of the food is handled with tickets, but the homemade pastries and alcoholic drinks are on a cash basis. And wait til you see the pastries spread! There are Greek icons and literature to purchase as well.

There is no cover charge, and the fest is open to all ages. Come on out, people watch, nosh, dance, grab a game of bingo and, generally, get your Opa! on.
