Panegyri Greek Festival Reinvented as COVID Drive Thru

On July 10 the 32nd annual Panegyri Greek festival of the Koismisis tis Theotokou Church of Erie, PA was held as a drive thru affair – the full festival was canceled due to Coronavirus.

The parish wanted to provide the homemade Greek foods to festival lovers this year during the pandemic and cars lined up to get their favorites, including gyros and baklava.

According to Erie News Now “the organizers were very happy with the turnout this weekend.

Michael Geanous, Co-chair of the festival, said on July 11, the festival’s second day, "it's been a lot better today, yesterday was a bit of a learning experience, we have been able to keep it moving along today a bit better, so far so good, the rains have been a challenge, but we can't do anything about that."
