Become a Greek food Connoisseur at this one-of-a-kind foodie experience.
Moussaka, Baklava, and Lamb abound at the Yiasou Greek Festival, returning to Charlotte this September! Embrace the crisp autumnal air as you roll down your car window, and experience a new kind of food festival, all from the safety of your own car. The festival, a yearly Dillworth event, is adapting to account for the new rise in COVID cases that have caused a new mask mandate to take effect.
On September 9th – 12th, the Yiasou festival will be drive-thru only and take place at Holy Trinity Charlotte.
The food featured at the festival will be rich, flavorful, and above all, delicious. Try a platter of souvlaki, marinated chicken, or a gyro. Even better, every platter that comes with four sides: a small greek salad, tiropita (a feta cheese pie), spanakopita (a feta and spinach pie), and dolmades (a grape leaf stuffed with ground beef and rice).
If you’ve always wanted to try different types of Greek desserts, you’re in luck. The festival will feature favorites like baklava, a phyllo pastry with chopped nuts and spices soaked in honey syrup, or kouloria, a twisted butter cookie with a hint of vanilla.
There won’t only be food at the Yiasou Greek Festival though. The celebration is an ode to Greek culture in general, and there will be dances and music to enjoy as well.
The schedule is as follows:
- Thursday, September 9th: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Friday, September 10th: 11 a.m. to 10 pm.
