Join us for the 7th Annual Greek Food Faire, May 17, 18 and 19, in downtown Santa Cruz! Awarded the 2013 Gold Award for Arts and Culture and Best Festival, this three day event features a huge array of authentic Greek food and desserts, including crowd pleasers like moussaka, spanakopita, grilled marinated lamb souvlaki and handmade pastries like diples (delicate fried pastries dipped in honey and dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar) and kataifi (a shredded wheat pastry saturated with honey and spices). At the Kafeneio (coffee shop), authentic hand-whipped Greek frappes will be available — you won't find this delicious drink stateside! Or, quench your thirst at the Taverna (bar), featuring Greek and American beer, wine and traditional Greek spirits. Entertainment includes live Greek music. All ages welcome, FREE admission! Please, no pets.
