The parishioners of the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake, along with our esteemed clergy, Fr. Mathew Gilbert, Fr. Michael Kouremetis, Fr. Elias Koucos, and Deacon Anatoly Kiriev, would like to extend a cordial welcome to you, our guests, to the 38th Annual Salt Lake City Greek Festival.
We are delighted to have you join us each September. For nearly four decades, the Greek Festival has endeavored to bring a touch of Greece to its friends and supporters in Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities.
Each year we celebrate our cultural heritage and share our faith with the city at this four-day event. Held at the Holy Trinity Cathedral campus in downtown Salt Lake, the festival features live music and dancing performances, authentic Greek cuisine, an outdoor marketplace and "kafeneio", and plenty of family-friendly activities. In addition to enjoying the Greek food, feeling the rhythm of the music, and dancing a little, we also invite you to make time to take a tour of the cathedral and visit our Hellenic Cultural Museum.
The annual festival is our largest fundraiser and all proceeds benefit the community to assist in funding maintenance and improvement of our two church campuses, along with the community's many ministries, services and activities. In addition to our capital needs, we make sizable contributions from Festival proceeds to numerous charitable organizations throughout the Salt lake Area.
On behalf of the countless parish-volunteers and friends, we want to thank you for sharing your time with us this weekend. Your support is deeply appreciated.
We thank you very much!
Σας ευχαριστούμε πάρα πολύ!
Dimitrios Tsagaris, Parish Council President
Greek Orthodox Community of Greater Salt Lake
