Cardiff Greek Festival 2012 is Sept. 8-9

Be Greek for the day and enjoy authentic food, music, live entertainment, dancing, and more for the entire family at the 34th annual Greek Festival held at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church on Saturday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 9 from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. The event is located half-mile east of I-5 at the Manchester Avenue exit in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Admission is $3 for adults and free for children under 12.

Free parking is available at adjacent Mira Costa College. For two days, the church grounds are transformed into a quaint Greek village atmosphere where you can experience fine food, traditional Greek dancing, and the warmth of Greek hospitality.  The open marketplace typifies a traditional Bazaar with Greek imports, pottery, fine jewelry, artwork, Greek Deli specialty food items, a selection of special Greek wines, and an array of items at YiaYia’s (Grandma’s) Treasures. Visit the North County Greek School booth and learn to say and write your name in Greek. Then get a personalized T-shirt with your new name in Greek letters. While adults are shopping, the children can enjoy the Olympics themed Fun Zone with crafts, game booths and miniature golf.

Tickets can be purchased at the festival or on the website at cardiffgreekfest.com.
