Panagouleas-Stephens said they have added new vendors this year along with a list of craft beers.
The free festival also offers tours of its over 100-year-old church throughout the weekend that Panagouleas-Stephens described as “a site to be seen.”
Parking is available at the Masonic Temple for $10 throughout the weekend except Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at Grandview Hospital’s Shaw Center parking lot for free. A free shuttle will be available to transport festivalgoers from Grandview Hospital’s Shaw Center parking lot to the festival and back.
Panagouleas-Stephens said her favorite part of the festival is watching her children dance.
“It’s really exciting to see history repeat itself,” Panagouleas-Stephens said. “I remember how I felt and now I get to see it through their eyes.”
The Dayton Greek Festival will take place Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
Panagouleas-Stephens said festival hours have changed this year to provide extra time to sanitize and clean at the end of each day for COVID purposes.
