The Asheville Greek Festival is this weekend. If you’ve been before you know that means great food,great merchandise, and great company. If you haven’t been before, don’t worry, I’m about to share everything you need to know about the Festival.
First, you need to connect with their website.
That means you should click here to visit the homepage and later click here to connect with their Facebook page. That’s where you can find out about the Festival’s schedule, the location, and other festival-goers.
Second, you need to go and here’s why.
- Great Greek food. (’nuff said)
- Great merchandise for Christmas. (Two years ago I took care of my entire list here.) The jewelry is incredible.
- Great music, dance, and Greek culture.
Third, get there early and be ready to walk.
The Greek Festival is held at the Holy Trinity Church in the Montford neighborhood. That means it’s in a residential neighborhood and here’s what that means.
- Parking is plentiful, but street side.
- Parallel parking skills are useful and sometimes necessary.
- Watch out for pedestrians.
- Be patient with other drivers and pedestrians.
- Get there early for a good parking place.
- Be ready to walk. (But that means you can eat extra Greek food!)
- Car pooling is not a bad idea.
- Mostly, be respectful for the residents who are putting up with us Festival-goers.
