Wilmington, Delaware Greek Festival Returns – With Social Distance

September 7, 2021

It's still a sign of the times because of the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, with different health measures applied around the country, but for Wilmington, Delaware's Greek Festival in September it means fewer vendors.

That's to allow for extra space so that people could, as much as possible, stay safe distances apart while browsing for favorites such as gyros, keftedes, pastitsio, spanakopita, baklava, and melomakarana.

There will also be daily dance performances and live music and the food will be sold in the lot of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, said Delaware Online of this year's slimmer 45th event.

Committee member George Rassias told the site that it's a welcome back after being a drive-through in 2020, and that before the pandemic the fair could draw up to 50,000 visitors.

The June festival drew around 5,000 people but Rassias said organizers hope that by the June 2022 event that it's back to normal so that there won't have to be a September version.

“We received overwhelming support from the community. The community came out and was patient. They were fantastic," Rassias said. "More people came out than we expected.”
