Welcome to the L.A. Greek Fest

The LA Greek Fest has established itself at the must-see event in the month of September, here in the City of Angeles. The three day festivity brings together the finest Greek cuisine, music, and dance in a lively setting on the spacious grounds of Saint Sophia Cathedral, a registered historical landmark, located in the heart of the Byzantine Latino Quarter of the Mid-City district of Los Angeles.

Currently in its 16th year, the Fest has grown from a handful of dedicated parishioners to an army of volunteers who cook, serve, clean and entertain the more than twenty thousand expected guests.
