37th Annual Santa Barbara Greek Festival
11 am - 7 pm Saturday July 31 and Sunday August 1
located in Santa Barbara's beautiful Oak Park
Listen to the distinct sounds of the bouzouki and other exotic instruments by authentic Greek musicians who perform traditional and popular songs. Delight in the beauty of the elaborate costumes worn by performers as they share their carefully practiced steps and intricate dances along with the enthusiastic audience.
you may even see a modern day Zorba perform!
Enjoy delectable festival favorites like gyros and moussaka. No Greek village would be complete without home made pastries from Yiayia's traditional recipes: baklava, melomakarona, and kataifi are just a few of the sweet treats to tempt you.
Oak Park is the site of many of Santa Barbara's popular festivals with lots of street parking available.
Shirley Valentine would have loved a visit to this Greek Village!
