When: Fri., May 26
Held in Tremont every Memorial Day weekend at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, the annual Greek festival features Greek music, food, drink and even antiques. Visitors will find a mouthwatering assortment of homemade Greek specialties like pastitsio, moussaka (Greek style lasagna), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and lamb shanks. But the crowd favorite is always the gyro — and they don't get much better than they are here. Be sure to save some room for baklava or loukoumades (fried dough with honey). If you want something to wash it all down with try the Greek beer Mythos or some Greek white wine. The festival starts at noon and is free. It continues through Monday.
