NORFOLK, Va. - The Greek Festival, Tidewater's oldest and largest ethnic festival, will begin Thursday, May 16 and run through Sunday, May 19.

Outdoor stands will sell all kinds of food, available for take-out or for dining in the festival's outdoor tents.

The festival's marketplace will sell artwork, gold and fine jewelry, and church tours, traditional dance performances and live music will be featured.

Every year, 10 percent of net proceeds from the Annunciation Norfolk Greek Festival are donated back into the local community and directly benefit local non-profit organizations, youth groups and many other charities.

  • Friday and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
