Come eat, drink and dance like a Greek at the 2022 Denver Greek Festival, June 17, 18, and 19, on the grounds of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral (the big gold dome), located at Alameda and Leetsdale.
For 55 years, the parishioners of the Assumption Cathedral have hosted the Denver Greek Festival and invited Coloradans to celebrate Greek culture, authentic homemade food, and dancing. Fun for all ages; enjoy live entertainment, sample delicious Greek foods, beers and wines.
There will be live cooking demonstrations using recipes which have been handed down through the generations and are available in the Festival of Greek Flavors cookbook for sale at the festival so you can make your favorite Greek dishes at home. The festival will also offer a ‘mezes’ (Greek tapas) menu near the bar to keep the celebration going while everyone is dancing and enjoying Greek music.
The Greek boutique will feature authentic Greek jewelry, clothing, Orthodox icons, and art, displaying the best of Greek artisans from around the country. Denver’s Greek Festival features traditional Greek foods such as a gyros sandwich, souvlaki, pastistio, dolmathes, keftedes, and spanakoptia, as well as desserts includingbaklava, kourambiethes, paximadia, and koulourakia.
New this year, we are offering baklava ice cream as one of our dessert options in the Sweet Shop.
Each cup of traditional Greek coffee is made-to-order, and we are offering frappes, a popular iced coffee drink in Greece. Ingredients this year are farm to table with local Colorado produce and meats!
There will be live Greek music throughout the festival, as well as youth and adult dance performances on all three days, throughout the day.
