We’re out to find the Best Massachusetts Greek Festival. Our new poll starts with some of our favorites, but ultimately you, the reader, the fan of Greek festivals, and the dedicated member of your local Greek Orthodox church will determine the winner.
We’ve been covering and attending Greek Festivals for years. We love the dedication and loyalty of these local Greek Orthodox Church communities. There’s an apparent limitless creativity in coming up with new ideas to support the church. Besides that, we love the incredible food made by the women of the church; the moussaka, souvlaki, spanakopita, baklava and more. There’s always lots of dancing, music raffles, and prizes. The stunning cathedrals are a great source of pride and tradition. It’s a joy to see how the faithful love and maintain their buildings.
These are our first five nominated festivals; Arlington Greek Festival: Saint Athanasius the Great Greek Orthodox Church, Woburn Greek Festival: Annunciation of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church, Worcester Greek Festival: Saint Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Dartmouth Greek Festival: Saint George Greek Orthodox Church and Brookline Greek Fest at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England.

Our featured image above is not from a Massachusetts Greek Festival but from a folk dance festival in Greece. It is from the Pefkohori Festival and the photographer Diverroy took the photo on September 19, 2014. It portrays Greek folk dancers from several countries taking part in the Annual Folk Dance festival in the village square of Pefkohori, Greece. If you have any photos from Massachusetts Greek Festivals that you want to share, please drop us a line.
