Welcome to Hellenic Fest 2017
Hellenic Fest is St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church's annual festival which dates back to 1983, and transports us for one weekend from our island to the beautiful islands and mainlaind of Greece. Each year the residents and vistors of Newport experience the traditional culture, food, pastries, wine, music and dancing which the Greek community of Newport proudly shares during this cultural celebration. There is fun for the whole family as we also have activities specifically for children to enjoy!
This year the Newport Hellenic Dancers will be celebrating the group's 15th anniversary and will present a retrospective of the last 15 years, including dances from all over Greece and Epirus. These young dancers, the pride of our community, are not to be missed as their lively and skilled dance program embodies the joyful nature of the Greek culture. After, be sure to jump in line with us and dance the night away as the Greeks love to do.
Enjoy being Greek for the day as you join us for the sights, sounds and tastes of Greece at this fun, family-friendly celebration.
