St. Demetrios Festival in Jamaica a Highlight for the Community

June 14, 2018

JAMAICA, NY – The Greek community flocked to the annual three-day St. Demetrios Festival in Jamaica, Queens on June 1-3. All those present enjoyed the authentic Greek foods, appetizers, sweets, loukoumades, and enjoyed live music, while for the little ones there were rides and games.

The presiding priest of the community, Rev. Fr. Konstantinos Kalogridis, thanked the volunteers for their endless hours of work, the sponsors and donors for their support, and the ladies of the Philoptochos for making the food and pastries, as well as all those who honored the community with their presence at the festival.

“All the proceeds,” he said, “will go towards the church’s operating expenses and especially for the strengthening of our Greek school. As you know, learning at our school is free for church members, with the costs covered by the festival. We are happy and proud of our school as well as the dance department that impresses everyone with its performance.”
