Annunciation Cathedral Greek Fest 2013

Since I can’t get enough of Greek festivals, I stopped by the annual Greek Fest on Saturday night held at the Annunciation Cathedral located in the Fenway near Wentworth Institute.  This 3-day event like others in the area is a major fundraiser for the church.  The cathedral is the seat of the Greek Orthodox Bishop of Boston and the cathedral’s community is celebrating its 110th anniversary.  The building is a beautiful Byzantine-revival style completed in 1923.  There is a huge turnout for this event which offers several musical groups, dance troupes and church tours, not to mention the homemade food.  I indulged in a vegetarian plate of spanakopita, rice pilaf, Greek salad and dolmades.  With no room left for dessert I took home a few boxes of desserts – there were at least a dozen varieties to choose from.
