The streets of Parramatta are set to come alive as Let’s Go Greek Festival returns

The Let’s Go Greek Festival in the south west Sydney suburb of Parramatta will return on Sunday, September 11.

Festival organisers have told The Greek Herald they are excited the festival is returning after a two year hiatus due to tough COVID-19 restrictions.

“We’d love everyone to attend. It’s going to be a beautiful day and we’re very excited to host an event for the whole Greek and wider community,” one of the organisers, John Bris, said.

On the day, attendees can expect plenty of Greek music, food and dancing.

A number of favourites are on the agenda including loukoumades and kondosouvli, carnival and donkey rides for the kids, and a market place for people to browse and mingle.

Nikitas Ellenis will be joining Iho Nyx band and Telly and Kosta Benetatos for some live Greek music, whilst there will also be a number of cultural and photography exhibits on display.

On the day, one lucky winner will also be in with a chance to win four return flights to Greece which have been donated by the host of My Greek Odyssey, Peter Maneas.

The City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Donna Davis encouraged everyone to attend this festival this year.

“The City of Parramatta has a long established relation with our Greek community,” the Parramatta Lord Mayor said.

“I encourage everyone to come along to this year’s Let’s Go Greek festival. It’s a celebration of the heritage and culture, energy and warmth of our Greek Australian community.”
