The annual Greek
Fest takes place during the first weekend in June at the
Arcadia Creek festival site in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo. Here are
the details. From the Downtown
Kalamazoo Inc. Central-City Website...
Many years ago
it all began with a small gathering of friends enjoying the Greek
culture in the basement of Dionysos restaurant. Little did Theo and
Stacy know that the people of Kalamazoo would embrace and accept
their heritage with over-whelming enthusiasm? After the first year,
people came and went and requested more Greek cultural events. Theo
and Stacy decided to not only share the food and drink of Greece,
but also the song and dance.
a few years the festival grew in size and it could no longer be held
in the basement of their restaurant. After much consideration it was
decided to make the festival a one-day outdoor event. Again, the
people of Kalamazoo and the surrounding areas were passionate about
this event. The decision was made to hold the festival as a
three-day event where musicians, singers, and dancers would come via
Greece and share the authentic Greek experience.
