Aliquippa Greeks Not Giving Up Their Festival: It’s October

ALIQUIPPA – Their town is synonymous with toughness and football and the Greeks of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania weren't about to let the COVID-19 pandemic ruin their annual festival even if they had to delay it until Oct. 15-17.

The event that's a big budget maker for Kimisis Tis Theotokou Greek Orthodox Church was slated for June, a favorite time for Greek-Americans and Hellenophiles to dine on stuffed grape leaves, moussaka, spanankopita, and delicious pastries.

The October period is when the church usually holds a mini-food festival but this year it will be doing double duty and the hungry will have to wait until the autumn for their Greek food favorites.

In the meantime, the 101-year-old church also will offer limited-menu, one-day Greek food sales on July 11 and 25, The Beaver County Times reported.

“That first one will be more of a takeout kind of thing,” George Kazas, a Vice-President of the church’s council said. “Hopefully … conditions will be better and we’ll be able to provide outdoor seating.”

The Metropolis of Pittsburgh said those over 65 should stay away from gatherings in line with the state's social distancing measures.


ADELAIDE – The Hellenic Studies Foundation announced a groundbreaking collaboration with beloved children's entertainment group, The Wiggles, for the launch of ‘Learning Greek with Lucia.
