September 20, 2022

COLUMBIA, SC – Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral hosted the 35th Annual Greek Festival in Columbia, SC, September 15-18. After the 2020 Festival was canceled due to the pandemic and last year’s drive-thru only event, festival-goers enjoyed the music, atmosphere, food and drink, once again in-person this year.
The first day saw many attending on their lunch breaks in the afternoon followed by the usual crowds with families as the festival continued with live music throughout, and shopping from vendors set up in a large tent.

Marc and Betsy Haudgen have been attending the festival since 2005, the local CBS affiliate News19 reported, adding that “they were saddened when it was called off, so Friday [September 16] they took advantage of good weather to buy gifts, and of course, the food.”

Betsy told News19, “We did miss it, you always miss being able to get out and do things like this.”

Charles Renick also attended on September 16 and said “it’s great having it back,” News19 reported, noting that “he enjoys the festival because it provides an opportunity for people to experience Greek culture.”
