Overview

GreekFest 2016 is fast approaching! The Greek Festival is one of Ottawa’s biggest and best festivals! 


The Zorba Show

OPA !…… It's ZORBA TIME 

GreekFest's world-famous Zorba Show is a treat for both young and old. It takes the audience back to a time when Greek men would head to their local tavernas to drown their sorrows away in drink and dance. The term "Zorba" was made famous by the 1960s film Zorba the Greek. Since then, the theme music from the movie is recognized worldwide and is a tune that conjures up images of Greece to all who hear it.


Fine Greek Cuisine

Nothing brings you closer to being in Greece than the aroma and flavours of it's excellent cuisine. Picture yourself in a little Taverna on the side of a mountain overlooking the Aegean Sea sipping retsina wine or a glass of ouzo and dining on some lamb and a fresh greek salad.

Mmmmm....doesn't that sound good?


Café Ouzeri

Live Greek Music


One of the biggest highlights at the festival is the LIVE MUSIC! This year we will have feature bands that will help bring the feeling of Greece into our hearts. What makes greek music so unique and festive is the sound of the bouzouki. There is no other instrument like it. When you combine it with the other instruments in the band, you can't help but tap your feet and sing along!


Feature Dance Groups

TRADITIONAL GREEK DANCING

Traditional dance is deeply ingrained in Hellenic Culture. Our history is not only communicated and passed down through spoken word, but through the visual language of dance. Not only is the movement important, but so is the accompanying song who's lyrics focus on a number of topics and occasions. These include village society and daily life, relationships, loss, hope, war, and spirituality. Each region in Greece is unique and identifiable in it's instrumentation and it's traditional costume. We look forward to presenting to you the importance and relevance of folklore in our culture.
