Victoria’s annual Greek Fest has returned with in-person food and entertainment


Greek Fest is back!

After operating a drive-thru only event last year due to COVID-19, the highly-anticipated event is happy to announce the return of in-person dining and entertainment.

The 2021 event has already begun, starting celebrations from August 27th to 29th. However, it’s not too late to enjoy some delicious Greek cuisine, as the event will continue this weekend!

This year, you can order your favourite Greek dishes to dine at the event or take to go. Online ordering for take-out orders will open two days before the event, with a priority pickup line. 

Attendees can pre-order online or pay on-site (cash only). 

The Greek Heritage Project Museum, which explores the history of the Greek people on Vancouver Island, will be open for visitors from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Greek Orthdox Church will also be offering tours from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the weekend.

The event has put together a comprehensive health and safety plan to keep guests safe. Precautions include monitoring event capacity, practicing social distancing measures and installing sanitization stations. 

Masks are encouraged but not mandatory.

Over the years, Greek Fest has contributed to more than a dozen organizations and charities that serve children, families and communities across Vancouver Island.

This year, Greek Fest 2021 is supporting the Tilicum School Hot Lunch Program in partnership with Saanich Firefighters.
