Hosted by the Hellenic Community of Vancouver and running from May 3-5, 2019, the Greek Food Festival is a major draw each year, bringing in hundreds of people to enjoy the live music, entertainment, history, and, of course, loads of food.

Attendees can expect to find all sorts of traditional Greek fare, from souvlaki to spanikopita, gyros, loukoumades, and much, much more. And of course, the popular event promises lots of “kefi,” which translates loosely as “happiness.”
