Time to smile and say…OPA!! Save the date! You can join the fun Friday through Sunday on February 7, 8 & 9, 2014 at St. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church in Naples and be Greek for a day – or even the entire weekend!
Come on out to St Katherine’s at 7100 Airport Pulling Road (just north of Orange Blossom), where you can celebrate the Greek spirit while feasting on delicious Greek food, wine and pastries created by our new pastry & meal chefs. Sample new taste treats at our authentic Greek Taverna! New Appetizers such as Marinated Mediterranean Octopus and Greek Chicken Wings will be available to tempt you. Wander over to our new Beverage Tent, serving Greek Lemonade, Wines, Beers, and Ice Tea.
According to Festival chairman Jim Ketis, this year’s expanded Festival will be “bigger & better than ever!” There will be Free Parking with Free 1-Minute Shuttle available conveniently across the street from the event.
More “New and Improved” features of the Festival include a bigger and broader layout with more vendors, an authentic Greek Taverna; and a new drive-through pick-up service which makes picking up some special treats to enjoy much easier. Children will love the new Bounce-House and new Kid- Friendly Characters throughout the Festival.
This ‘family friendly’ Festival features live music and dancers in authentic Greek costumes, scheduled church tours with beautiful new Iconography on view, and Greek cultural items for sale. Look for our big white tent in the rear of the church.
This year’s Greek Festival raffle prize is a fabulous 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA from Mercedes Benz of Naples. Raffle tickets are available in advance from St. Katherine’s parishioners and will be on sale at the Festival each day. The drawing will take place between 6 and 7:00pm Sunday, the 9th of Feb, 2014.
