HISTORY OF GREEKFEST

Ottawa GreekFest

Since 1975, the Ottawa Greek Festival has welcomed thousands of guests from all over the world. Initially, the Festival was a small event for the members of our Community to celebrate an important religious holiday in the Greek Orthodox Church: The Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos.

Over the decades, GreekFest continued to grow and earned a reputation as one of the top cultural festivals in Ottawa and even North America.

During the course of the Festival, guests are treated to delicious Greek food, music, dance, arts, and the famous Zorba Show.

GreekFest is a tremendous undertaking and would not be possible were it not for HCO members that volunteer their time each year to ensure its success.
