Our Greek Festival is an annual event here at Saint Sophia. It is a major fundraiser which allows the Orthodox Community of faithful to continue to serve the Fox Valley area through philanthropy, liturgical services, classes, youth ministries and much more!
Festivals are a very important part of life dating back to ancient Greece. This tradition continued in modern Greece for various holidays and has been carried over to the United States by the Greek-American community here at Saint Sophia.
The Saint Sophia Greek Fest is an annual celebration of Greek Culture presenting the ethnic gems of music, cuisine, dance, traditional dress, pastries, and the Christian Orthodox faith.
Now that another great Greek Fest has been celebrated, I wanted to extend a heartfelt, Hellenic "Thank You" to the Chair’s of our Fest, Dan and Sieglinde Savas, Nick Smith all of the hard working volunteers, The Ladies Philoptochos, as well as all our guests who came out and made the Saint Sophia Greek Festival 2019 a huge success! Our multitudes ate, drank, and danced all weekend long!
Once again, Efharisto kai to Hronou!
Thank you and to Next Year!
