Newport RI Greek Festival at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church
July 28, 2017 - July 30, 2017
Welcome to Hellenic Fest!
Hellenic Fest is St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church’s annual festival which dates back to 1983 and transports us for one weekend from our island to the beautiful islands and mainland of Greece. Each year the residents and visitors of Newport experience the traditional culture, food, pastries, wine, music and dancing which the Greek community of Newport proudly shares during this cultural celebration. There is fun for the whole family as we also have activities specifically for children to enjoy!
This year the Newport Hellenic Dancers will be celebrating the group’s 15th anniversary and will present a retrospective of the last 15 years, including dances from all over Greece and Epirus. These young dancers, the pride of our community, are not to be missed as their lively and skilled dance program embodies the joyful nature of the Greek culture. After, be sure to jump in line with us and dance the night away as the Greeks love to do.
Enjoy being Greek for the day as you join us for the sights, sounds, and tastes of Greece at this fun, family-friendly celebration and get the chance to win one of our raffles prize amount of $5,000, $1,500 & $500!
