The Greek Festival of Sydney is an annual series of events that are held between February and June each year.
It’s a massive celebration of all aspects of the Greek culture and it’s organised by the Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales. Highlights of the festival include a variety of Greek music, theatre, visual art and dance performances.
Be sure to check the festival program of events so that you don’t miss out on a performance that you want to see. The performance events at the Greek Festival of Sydney are often accompanied by a range of stalls selling Greek food and drinks.
There are also numerous presentation events throughout the festival that are held at the Greek Community Club in Lakemba. These presentations cover a diverse range of Greek-themed topics and are held in the venue’s function rooms, where you can also enjoy a diverse range of Greek cuisine and beverages.
The Greek culture is one of the oldest in the world and Australia has a strong Greek heritage through the steady migration that occurred during the twentieth century. The Greek Festival of Sydney gives all Australians a chance to experience and enjoy this unique culture.
Most Greek Festival venues are easily accessible by private or public transport (trains, buses, ferries or light rail). Be aware though that there may be traffic delays in reaching any inner-city venues at various times. The Greek Community Club in Lakemba is about 16 kilometres west of the CBD and you can get there by road via the A4. Public transport options (bus and train services) are also available.
