Greek Day on West Broadway is an official sign of summer and it’s coming up this Sunday. Spanning from Blenheim to MacDonald, the road will be closed to traffic as pedestrian festival-goers enjoy performances on two stages, a family picnic area, Boutari Wines cooking demos, exhibitors like the Vancouver Aquarium and Power Smart, and of course the food.
The main entrance to the event will be from the North side of Balaclava. The performance stages will feature dance lessons, live music, folklore, poetry, and more.
The Athenian Agora Market Place will be around MacDonald and McKenzie streets.
Kids can hang out in the petting zoo or the craft area where they can make olive wreaths, mosaics, play in a bouncy castle and get their faces painted for free.
Samples will be available from 23 food vendors including the Olive Iliad Sampling Bar. Try all the souvlaki you desire (chicken or pork), gyros, lamb, salads, saganaki, and loukoumades.
Greek Day is presented by the Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC and will run from 11:00am until 9:00pm on Sunday, June 24th, 2012. A full PDF program with map is available for download. Since West Broadway will be closed to traffic, consider transit and bike options.
