The Greek Festival is an annual event, in late August on Oahu, that celebrates all that is Greek. The real star of the festival is the food with booths that sell gyros, moussaka, souvlaki, spanakopita, Greek pizza, and much more. They also have various wares for sale like shirts and jewelry. A stage features live music that you're welcome to dance to, just insert ouzo as needed.

Speaking of drinks, alcohol is sold here so you can choose from wine, Greek beer, and ouzo. The festival benefits the Ss. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Pacific.

It's held at the McCoy Pavilion at Ala Moana Beach & State Recreation Area which is actually a pretty small venue for an event like this. Because of that, it's pretty crowded and seating tends to be quite limited. Worse yet, seating in the shade is tough to come by. Although there are several food booths, expect long lines at all of them.

The event is fun and the music and food are good. It's a fun place to spend some time but I don't really recommend it if you have younger kids as they'll be pretty bored here once the food is gone. For adults who want to relax, have a few drinks, eat some tasty food, and enjoy some music it's a good time overall.
