The Greek Orthodox Community of Greater Salt Lake on Friday welcomed Utahns back to its annual Greek Festival.

The festival, which was forced to take a year off last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, runs through Sunday in downtown Salt Lake City.

“We are excited to celebrate our culture and heritage with Utah and the surrounding states, and look forward to sharing our Greek hospitality with everyone!” Parish Council President George Karahalios said in a statement.

Festivalgoers will once again be able to enjoy Greek food and pastries, dancers they’ve come to expect each year and more. In addition, the Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Hellenic Cultural Museum, 279 S. 300 West, will also be open for tours.

The festival runs Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Admission is $3; children 5 and under can get in free.
