Ouzo Cake? Sign Us Up for Little Rock’s Greek Festival

You'd expect the usual food fares at a Greek festival: souvlaki, baklava, pastitsio, moussaka but the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church's event in Little Rock Arkansas has a real mouth waterer ready: ouzo cake.

For the second year in a row though, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be a drive-through affair with online ordering to keep people safe social distances away, even if the smell of Greek food will have them wanting to jump out of their cars.

The festival, said The Arkansas Times, will be held Oct. 1-2 but missing again will be the cultural treats of music and entertainment that makes it even happier and interactive, which still can't happen because of a surge of coronavirus cases.

“The 2021 International Greek Food Festival looks forward to continuing its tradition of serving food, friends and the community,” said festival chair Jerry Horani. “The Festival allows us to support fantastic charities with the help of our wonderful sponsors and the Central Arkansas community.”

The International Greek Food Festival has donated than $1.5 million to over 30 charities that serve children, families and communities throughout Central Arkansas.
