Greek Festival This Weekend in West Palm Beach: Amazing Food Made by Church Ladies

Festival season has reached South Florida's shores. This

weekend, the St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church in West Palm Beach will be

hosting the 38th Annual Greek Festival, open to anyone looking to get a fix of feta cheese and folk


The festival will feature artwork, jewelry, Greek cuisine and

performances. The youth ministry will dance in traditional garb alongside the Heart of Greece dance

troupe, and for those who enjoy a hearty lamb shank, St. Catherine has

"the best around," according to a church representative. While some

food is ordered from local Greek bakeries, most dishes are cooked on

site by church staff and chefs.

The church claims to have received calls about the festival from

"Opa!" enthusiasts in the area for weeks. As a result, festival

organizers have made entry free on Friday between noon and 4 p.m. A

$3 donation will be required for entry for attendees over 12

years old at other times.

The festival runs from noon to 11 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22; and on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

St. Catherine is located at 110 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach, and

parking will be available in the church's lot and along Flagler Drive.
