I have never been to a Greek festival Jeff Dowler, CRS and I wish I could say "save me a ticket" but with so much going on here right now I'm hoping you will give us a reminder next year.

We are having our Greek festival this weekend, as well, Jeff... so it won't matter what coast someone is on... they can hit up a festival.

What a wonderful opportunity to indulge in Greek food.  We both love it, particularly eggplant moussaka.  I believe that we also have a Greek festival in many here1. A

Cardiff is a cool little town and the church and church grounds where this is held are stunning. Next stop Greece itself someday.

Moussaka is a fave of mine, as is spanikopita, and of course my sweet tooth loves baklava!


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 2 months ago

I love these as well Hannah Williams  This festival allows you to place orders for pastries in advance and then pick them up - good way to not miss your favorite!
