Welcome to the Minneapolis Greek Festival!

 

🌺“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” – Anonymous🌺

I am officially starting a new journey at a new destination, Minneapolis! And there was no better way to start it off than with the Minneapolis Greek Festival!

Perhaps my love for everything Greece is a biased feeling because I am a huge lover of Greek (and also Roman) mythology, but having a taste of Greece before eventually traveling here (one day) was an amazing experience.

The Festival was organized for September 8-10th, and so ran for the entire weekend. This is certainly an event that I would recommend to anyone visiting Minneapolis or if you live there, it’s a family friendly event worth checking out!

The festival featured greek future expressed in the form of traditional dances, music, and of course… food!

I particularly enjoyed the display of greek beverages and delicacies, not only because I am a foodie but also because food and culinary arts are a great part of culture all over the world.

Food was offered using a “ticket” system, and every guest had the opportunity to earn 2 free tickets simply by bringing 3 dry good items for donations.

The Balkava Sundae that I had (on a perfect Sunday too) was a real delight! It was my first time tasting something Greek ever, and I certainly enjoyed it.

I also loved the fact that I got the opportunity to discover the Orthodox church and learn more about its beliefs and teachings during the festival. While appreciating its similarities with the Catholic Church, I also got to discover the few features that make the orthodox church different.

Thinking about the fact that I nearly didn’t go, I feel contented by the fact that I did. ♥️

Moving to a new city can be daunting, but hey – life is the living. I know for sure this taste of Greece revived in me the desire to… go to Greece one day.

Have you ever been to Greece?
