After three different date changes due to the pandemic, the Newport News Greek Festival, sponsored by the Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church will be happening this weekend, August 28 through August 30. The event takes place at 60 Traverse Road, Newport News, VA, and directions can be found on their website. Friday and Saturday hours will be 11am-8pm, and they will be open Sunday 12-6pm. The event is drive thru only.
The menu is on their website, and also on their Facebook page, and includes Greek food, beverages and desserts.
The organizers ask that everyone cooperate with their guidelines so that they can host a safe and enjoyable event for everyone. All attendees must stay in their cars. There will be no outside mingling, strictly food, beverages, and desserts this year. There will also be no pre-orders, every order will be taken in person at the event. Adding to the experience this year is the opportunity to visit their vendors to shop online. More information and links for online shopping can be found here.
“We look forward to showcasing our authentic Greek Food and Desserts to our wonderful patrons,” said Greg Bicouvaris, marketing staff person for the Newport News Greek Festival. Though it may be very different from other years, everyone in the community is excited that the festival will be able to happen in some form.
