In an almost sold-out concert at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre last night, Melina Aslanidou announced that the new date for the Greek Fest Darling Harbour is Sunday, March 27. The Greek singer will remain in Sydney to perform at the event.
The Greek Orthodox Community of NSW, under the direction of Property NSW, was forced to postpone the Greek Fest last weekend due to the unprecedented rain which hit Sydney.
But now, with the new date locked in, Tumbalong Park will be packed with food vendors, dishing up classic and modern twists on Greek snacks and sweets including everything from souvlakia, sheftalies, haloumi, loukoumades, a licensed bar and much more.
There’ll be Greek dance performances at the Convention Centre Forecourt by Sydney’s best Greek and Cypriot dancing schools and loads of live music entertainment from local Melbourne artist Maria Maroulis.
Undoubtably one of the most prominent multicultural events in Sydney, and a must do in the events calendar, the Greek Fest will give Sydneysiders a taste of Greece as the foreshore of Darling Harbour comes alive.
“After much persistence we were excited to be able to secure the new date with Darling Harbour and we were equally excited that Melina Aslanidou was able to stay on to perform,” the President of the Greek Orthodox Community, Harry Danalis, said.
“We know this is an event that the public looks forward to and were prepared to do everything in our power to make it happen.”
