A new highlight will be an outdoor Greek market, “resembling a delightful street in Greece lined with bistro tables and chairs, alongside the popular bookstore,” Clay said. The market will feature Greek coffee, frappés (iced coffee), cookies, and a Greek yogurt bar.
Visitors can enjoy the continuous entertainment with two large stages. At the main stage, they can dance to exciting music by a popular Greek band and watch folk dance groups perform in colorful, hand-made costumes.
At the outdoor amphitheater, reminiscent of the theaters of ancient Greece, children and adults alike will delight in a Greek mythology play, as well as traditional Greek folk songs performed by the Festival Chorus and Orchestra, and crowd-pleasing cooking demonstrations.
