Welcome Summer with Vestal’s Greek Festival

Well it’s not quite Summer but after this weekend, it sure feels that way.  And if you lived in the Southern Tier for any amount of time, you know you can’t go by the calendar and sometimes you take what you can get.  When I think “Summer’s coming” to the Greater Binghamton area, I think the Greek Festival in Vestal, New York.

I love the food as much as I like meeting up with people I haven’t seen in a while. If you like great Greek food, bring your appetite as you will have a hard time choosing between a flavorful chicken or lamb gyro or some more traditional Greek fare like Moussaka, Spanakopita (spinach pie), Laconigo (greek sausage w orange peel).  I always do the sampler platter.  Get there early as sometimes they sell out.

And of course you have to save room for Baklava or the famous Honey Puffs.  Rumor has it, the best Greek chefs come out to volunteer for this event each year.

Then there’s beer on tap, American or Greek.  And a nice variety of imported Greek wines. There’s also soda, tea, coffee and really good baked goods. Traditional music will fill the air throughout the 4-day festival.

Here’s what you need to know about the 41st Annual Grecian Festival:
