Join Us September 22-24, 2023

Aurora Greek Fest offers a taste of Greek hospitality, culture and most importantly delicious Greek food!

St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church hosts this semi-annual festival which runs for a long weekend every May and November, attracting thousands of guests from Aurora and the surrounding suburbs.

Now in its 24th year, the Aurora Greek Fest is much more than a cultural event for the families of St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church. It is an opportunity to share a part of ourselves with the community. Who we are. Where we come from. What we believe.

As you enjoy our excellent cooking, we invite you all inside our beautiful parish to receive a “taste” of our religious heritage which was founded in Christ and passed down to us without interruption for nearly 2,000 years.

Admission is free and we have plenty of parking. We look forward to seeing you this September!
