Tucson Greek Festival will celebrate its 37th year in 2012. The festival
is a celebration of all things Greek in Tucson. There is live music,
dancing, and lots of Greek food.
The festival has lots to see and
experience including cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts vendors,
presentations by leaders in the Greek community and authors, there are
exhibits and even Greek dancing lessons! Opa!
We know you can hear the
Greek music in your head as you read this! Go, check it out. And when
you learn how to dance like the Greeks, post it on YouTube and we
promise to give it a look-see!
Tucson Greek Festival is located on Fort Lowell Road, near Mountain
Avenue in Tucson on the north side of the street. It generally runs from
Thursday through Sunday in the last part of September. Parking can be
an issue on the weekend, so they encourage you to park at a designated
shuttle area and take a shuttle to the entrance of the festival (check
out the Tucson Greek Festival website for details).
Admission prices are
$3.00 for ages 13 and up, kids 12 and under are free. If you are
interested in attending, check their website for discounted tickets or
free admission tickets.
We have found them on The Tucson Greek Festival
website from time to time, so it never hurts to look! If you can’t find
any, take a can of food with you for the food bank and your $3, because
we think this is still a great deal for a family friendly event. Enjoy
some food, drink and dancing with some of the most fun people we have
met! Opa! Wait, I think we already said that….
