Festival Hellenika celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2011 with a packed program of activities.

Presented by the South Australian Council for the Greek Cultural Month Inc., the festival highlights the artistically rich culture of Greece and of the Greek community in South Australia.

The events that are part of Festival Hellenika encourage the diversity and strong historical background and ties Greek-Australians have with Greece. The festival kicks off in March and runs for the next two months.

Some highlights include: Under an Athens moon – a selection of the finest melodic and romantic songs by Greek composers and influenced by the bright Athenian moon; a musical workshop titled The role of percussion in Greek music; and the classical Greek columns walk, guided by Spiros Sarris, President of the SA friends of the Australian Archaeological Institute of Athens.
