South Australia’s biggest Greek festival is returning to the shores of Semaphore this weekend, with a two day-day line up of events celebrating the sounds and flavours of Greece.
Organised by the Greek Orthodox Community of Port Adelaide, this year’s Delphi Bank Semaphore Greek Festival is particularly special marking its 40-year anniversary and is expected to attract over 35,000 visitors.
As per tradition, the event will be run by local volunteers, adding to the family-friendly atmosphere.
The program features a line-up of Greek music performances, dancing, food, and plenty of activities for both young and old, including a host of competitions and prizes to be won.
After the positive reception last year, restaurateur and pastry chef George Diakomichalis together with journalist Theodora Maios will return as MC’s.
While Kyriakos Gold will host an engaging virtual event via the festival’s social media channels using the hashtag #sema4greekfest.
“Our festival has grown significantly and is now entering a new phase,” said President of the Greek Orthodox Community of Port Adelaide, John Douvartzidis.
“For our 40th anniversary we promise something for everyone and, as Greeks do best, creating a great party atmosphere.”
The Semaphore Greek Festival is on from 12-13 January at Semaphore Beach. More information about the festival can be found at Semaphore Greek Festival’s official website semaphoregreekfestival.com.au or their Facebook page ‘Semaphore Greek Festival’ and on Instagram @sema4greekfest.
