October 13-15th, 2022 at Holy Trinity Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral.

Become Greek for One Weekend

Birmingham’s oldest and most cherished cultural event starts this week. Join your friends and neighbors at the 49th annual Greek Food Festival next month. This gathering has been an act of love and charity from the Greek Community to Birmingham going back four generations.

Since 1972 the festival has touched not only the lives of Birmingham and surrounding citizens but has also impacted many charitable organizations, both local and national. 

So far, they have donated a large portion of their proceeds which stands at over 3 million dollars, to charity.

Delicious and Traditional Food

Greek cuisine prepared lovingly by the parishioners of the community and served up during the festival with smiles and loving hands is a major part of the get-together. 

The festival has thousands of return visitors every year with eager anticipation for the wonderful dishes and cultural environment. Throughout the weekend, there is dancing and Greek music to entertain the many visitors who attend. 

 The exciting Open- Air festival provides outside tents with seating for dining.

 Drive-thru, walk-up and even take-out is offered for your convenience. 

Patrons mark their calendars way ahead of time, looking forward to the traditional dishes prepared with quality ingredients.

Mouth-watering Menu

Entrees and desserts are all homemade using the same recipes that have been satisfying customers for the last 48 years back to when the festival first began.

Only the freshest and finest ingredients are used for the gathering.

Entrees include;

  • Souvlakia pastichio
  • Greek Chicken
  • Spanakopita
  • Dolmathes
  • Veggie Plates
  • Greek Salad
  • Gyros and many more.

Don’t Miss It

We at the NJP encourage you to save the date and be sure to attend this fantastic cultural favorite. 

Admission is free, and there is free parking at the former Liberty National Building located one block away on 20th Street.

Each year the festival brings everyone together to sample mouth-watering food, visit with old friends, and gain an understanding of Greek culture. 

There’s a reason it’s lasted so long.
