The shores of Tempe Town Lake will be transformed into a Greek marketplace where people will enjoy live Greek music, see Greek dancers, taste Greek food and sample some Greek beer or wine.
If you have ever wondered what the heck Souvlaki, Saganaki, Dolmades or even Gyros are, this is your chance. If you are already a fan of Greek food, you know this is the place to be for the three days of the annual Greek Festival.
