Greek Food Festival starts Friday in Little Rock

Now in its 37th year, the Greek Food Festival has seen some changes over the decades and much like last year, the event will be drive-through only.

The Festival starts at 11 a.m. on Friday and ends at 7 p.m. The hours are the same for Saturday, the last day of the event.

The Festival and the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church are at 1100 Napa Valley Drive in west Little Rock.

Food can be ordered in advance and online by clicking here.

Among the menu items are gyros and Greek salad. There’s also a couple of unique items on the menu like Pete’s Famous Greek Salad Dressing named after long-time parishioner Pete Vratsinas. The other is a tub of Baklava crumbles for sale at $5. 

The Baklava crumbles can be used to replicate the Festival’s famous Sundae in Athens as one would use the crumbles to top vanilla ice cream.

The Festival is a fundraiser for the church and also supports local charities.

This year's charities are:

  • Community Connections

  • Easterseals Arkansas

  • Centers For Youth And Families
