Opa! Following two summers off, Greek Fest will officially return to Wisconsin State Fair Park this summer. The 2022 return will take place Friday, June 24 through Sunday, June 26.
Organized by the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Greek Fest typically fills the fairgrounds with gyros and other spit-roasted meats, delicious Greek desserts, Greek music and dancers, games and rides, a Greek marketplace, and much more. In 2020 and 2021, COVID-19 concerns caused organizers to transition the 55th and 56th annual events into a “Greek Fest Drive Thru” outside the church instead of full-fledged festivals in order to allow folks to get Greek Fest food favorites and support Annunciation in the process.
The 2022 Greek Fest return will run from 11 a.m. through 11 p.m. on June 24-25 and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 26. Beyond all the Greek goodies mentioned above, this year’s installment will also feature a Whole Greek Chicken Drive Thru all thee days. There will also be live performances by Vintage Groove, Sugar Bowl, The First Wave, and Six Pack Sammy. Best yet, admission is free. Save the date because Greek Fest is coming back!
