Feast on Authentic Fare at the Wilmington Greek Festival

Pastichio, moussaka, and spanakopita are all on the menu at the Wilmington Greek Festival. If you’ve never heard of these traditional Greek dishes, allow the festival chefs to enlighten you. You’ll find that pastichio is akin to a Greek version of lasagna, spanakopita is a savory spinach pie, and moussaka showcases layers of eggplant, potato, and seasoned beef in casserole form. And the food is only part of the Wilmington Greek Festival, held at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. June 6th through the 10th.

In addition to the gyro, souvlaki, and calamari—all of which you can pick up curbside for a quick lunch—the Greek Fest also promises traditional entertainment. Atlantis, a highly regarded Philadelphia orchestra, plays classic Greek music outside of the church each evening from 5 to 11 p.m. The Greek Terpsechorian Youth Folk dance group also performs, adding another dose of authentic entertainment to the week.
