The Lincoln Park Greek Fest brings all the aromas, sounds, tastes and traditions of Greece to Sheffield Avenue for three days in June. This is no mean task, as this culture is arguably the richest and most joyous in the world.
Being Greek means relishing the world around you and enjoying life to its fullest. The event is designed to give Chicagoans the experience of "philoxenia" which is the ancient, defining mark of the Greek culture: generosity of spirit and hospitality. The theme is "everyone can be Greek for a day!".
The moment the visitor steps foot on the event site a true cultural immersion begins. The senses are flooded with the smells of olive oil, oregano, lamb and beef, the sounds of Greek music coming from the Mainstage, and the sights, sounds and smells of the outdoor market.
The food is a huge draw - and the sheer variety of it is staggering. There are wide varieties of appetizers, salads, roasted, grilled, and rotisserie meats, cheeses, desserts and Greek coffee , WINE and beer. No matter what the food craving- it's likely it can be satisfied at Lincoln Park Greek Fest.
In the true spirit of Greek hospitality, the event's entertainment lineup offers something for everyone. The music lineup includes traditional and modern Greek, as well as modern pop, rock, indie rock, and even country, and traditional Greek dancing will be performed by a professional dance troop.
