The Central Georgia Greek Festival takes place every year in Macon. This year, the Festival will take place the weekend of Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Oct. 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church on 859 1st St.

If you are new to Macon, or perhaps have never heard about the Central Georgia Greek Festival before, this festival would be a great way to hang out with your friends while enjoying wonderful food, music and dancing.

Natalie Saratsiotis is one of the board members of Holy Cross Church who helps put on the festival each year.

We love inviting people into our homes and feeding them with our homemade food,” Saratsiotis said. “So what better way than to feed Central Georgia than to have a Greek Festival?”

The event will host a variety of foods such as spanakopita, gyros and kebabs. They will also have Greek pastries, such as baklava. To go along with the food the event will also host dancers from The Marietta Greek Dance Program as well as live music performed by George Karras.

There will also be a variety of vendors at the festival, selling things from jewelry and clothes to handcrafted pottery and woodworkings. For more information about which booths will be at the festival, you can visit the Central Georgia Greek Festival’s website.

Since the festival started in 2008, it has grown into a huge affair that thousands of people attend. People from all over Georgia attend the festival, not just local Macon residents.

The reason we started the festival was not only to invite Central Georgia into the life of a Greek, but also the life of a Greek Orthodox,” Saratsiotis said. Our faith is extremely important to us and we want to be able to share with everyone who we are and what we believe in.”

So whether you want to enjoy great food, listen to live music or want to watch professional dancers, the Central Georgia Greek Festival might be the perfect weekend activity!
