Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, 11am-9pm
The 32nd Annual Greek Food Festival is held the first weekend of June in Boise at Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church. I have attended this event many times, and it is a foodie’s heaven! Besides all of the delicious Mediterranean dishes there is traditional dancing and dance lessons, music, storytelling, and tours of the church. All proceeds benefit the church.
The menu includes some of these mouthwatering dishes: souvlaki, lamb kebabs, pastitisio (Greek pasta lasagne), gyros, Greek Garden Salad, Spanikopita (a personal favorite) and a list of amazing desserts that you can eat there or stock up on take home! For a full menu, complete with pictures, visit the festival’s website.
The event is held at the Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, off of 27th and Bannock, in Boise. Parking is limited, so plan on carpooling, walking or bicycling to the event. The cost is only $1, with children under 12 free of cost.
