St. Augustine Greek Festival: October 7-9, 2022
This annual festival combines history, faith and food to create a flavorful salute to St. Augustine’s enduring Greek heritage.
In 1768, the first Greek Orthodox pioneers in the New World arrived south of St. Augustine and later sought refuge at the Avero House on St. George Street – a beautiful structure now known as the St. Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine. Today, the beautiful Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of St. Augustine serves as the present and future of the faith. Located at 2940 County Road 214, the church is the location of this year’s always popular St. Augustine Greek Festival.
