Marlborough: Eighth Annual Grecian Festival

August 31, 2013 - September 2, 2013

Marlborough – Revelers will celebrate cultural traditions Labor Day weekend as Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church hosts the eighth annual Grecian Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday, Sept. 1, noon to 10 p.m., and Monday, Sept. 2, noon to 6 p.m. Activities will take place outdoors on the church grounds as well as inside the community center known as Hellenic Hall, which opened in 2011 following a fire in 2001. Proceeds from past years” festivals helped its building fund.

The church had hosted a one-day festival in the 1980s and a picnic in the 1960s through “70s. Motivated to raise funds for a new community center, the parish council considered reviving the festival in 2006. Parish council member John Gagas volunteered to organize and expand it into a three-day festival, and has served as the co-chair since its inception.

The dinner station will offer lamb shank, and lamb and chicken kebabs, each served with rice, a Greek salad and a roll. Among the a la carte items available will be stuffed grape leaves, pastitsio (baked pasta), and spanakopita (spinach pie), which Gagas noted is a popular choice.
