Be Greek for a weekend! Every Labor Day weekend, Monterey becomes a part of the Mediterranean as the Monterey Bay Greek Festival takes over Custom House Plaza, Monterey State Historic Park in downtown Monterey.
You won't be able to resist the mouthwatering smell of traditional Greek food. While you're munching on dolmades, you can watch traditional dance, listen to music, and even learn a little at a cultural lecture. Sip a cup of Greek coffee while you order that ever-popular dessert, baklava. Then step up to the stage yourself for a lesson in Greek dance! A traditional taverna will open in the evening, serving Greek and American beer, wine and ouzo.
The delicious food, great music and dance are not to be missed. The Monterey Bay Greek Festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 7pm and Monday from 11am to 4pm.
Funded in cooperation with the Monterey County Board of Supervisors and the communities of Pebble Beach Company, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Salinas, Sand City, Seaside, Moss Landing, Carmel Valley, Big Sur, and Salinas Valley.
