Tacoma Greek Festival Quick Start Guide

You’ll need tokens to buy food and drink in the tent, as well as appetizers, a la carte food items and beverages in the dining room. Purchase tokens at the token booth in the tent.

Full service sit-down lunch and dinner meals in the dining room require ticket purchases. Buy meal tickets inside the dining room.

The Greek Pastry Shop and the Orthodox Shop, located upstairs, accept cash, charge and debit cards.

Essentially, all Greek pastries and breads are hand made here in the St. Nicholas kitchen.

On Stage: Greek Folk Dance Performances

St. Nicholas proudly presents the young people of our Parish, performing traditional folk dances from Greece. These dances and the music are hundreds, if not thousands, of years old. Our dancers wear costumes indicative of those traditionally worn by men and women at special occasions, originating in a different part of the country.

All of our youth dancers are parishoners at St. Nicholas. Our dancers range in age from just 4 years old to about 19.
