Greek Festival Heading to Daytona Beach November 11-14

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

I  am driving by St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church located at 129 N. Halifax Ave right on the Halifax River (Intracoastal) in Daytona Beach, and I see familiar signs inviting to the 34th annual Greek Festival. And then I stumble on the articles on the Internet

Greek FestivalI have been on two of them before, and even though I am not from Greece, it is interesting and it is a lot of fun. Besides the tour of St. Demetrios Orthodox Church, there is entertainment and food at Riverfront Center at St Demetrios. Expect plenty of food and plenty of entertainment. Listen to live music, watch Greek dance ensemble, but then you can join the dancers on the floor and learn a move or two. If you are shy, Greek beer will make it a bit easy for you.

Just as you walk in (a couple of dollar as donation will get you in), you will see a whole line of Gyros Machines and roasting cones and the aromas will overpower you. You will find everything from Greek Salads, stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, Gyro with Tatziki sauce, Baklava, fresh honey balls…

I wrote about the 32nd Festival Greek Festival In Daytona Beach. I plan to go there in two weeks. Free bus shuttle from the Ocean Center parking garage on Friday, Nov 12th and Saturday, Nov. 13th from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.

For our existing customers and for our future ones who would like to visit the Greek Festival before 4 PM we offer free transportation from our office, which is just a few blocks away at 313 S Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach, FL 32118 at Fountain beach Resort.

Four day event starts on Thursday November 11 and runs through Sunday. From 11 AM to 10 PM except for Sunday, when it closes at 8 PM. Join thousands and thousands of Daytona Beach residents for good food and good time.

Jon, what a great idea! Can you pick me up and get me there?

Seriously, I love Greek food, what's not to love? The music and the dancing is an added bonus for sure. I am sure everyone will have a great time!

I just want to know, are you going to be out there dancing?

Jon, we just finished our Greek Festival in September. It was my husband Demetrius' last year to chair the festival and was our 50th anniversary!

Be sure to impress the Greeks and say "Kali Orexi" which means the equivalent of bon appetite! Yassou!  It's awesome that you offer shuttle services - may have to think about who would do that for us in Tulsa!!

Andrea - sorry only from the airport.

I used to live in the next building, and we wold just go there in the evening, pay our couple of dollars a person and walk around feeling the atmosphere of the event.

I love Gyro, but I am a vegeterian now...

But I am no dancer... never learned it, never danced. Olga loves dancing, and is angry with me

Oh, well...

Between the Greek festivals and the Italian festivals I used to frequent in Boston and New York City, I've never been able to choose which ones food I like better.  Both awesome!

My wife brought me home a gyro and greek salad. Awesome! We're going together Sunday. Can't wait. Big question! When it's not greek festival week, where do the Greeks in Daytona go to get Gyros? I want to know where they go to eat Greek food out! Somebody help me!

John,

Not that many options. There is a place called Mediterranean Experience Cuisine, they have Gyro sandwiwch on a pita. It is, I think, 170 N Beach Street. Nasi, who is a chef there, is not Greek, but the sandwich is (LOL)

Another place would be Dimitri's Artisan Sandwiches in South Daytona at 2450 South Ridgewwod Ave. You will really like this place
