50th Annual Greek Food FestivalThe Adventures of Charlie

Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Reading is hosting their 50th Annual Greek Food Bazaar. What began in November 1970 as a fundraiser to raise money for a new Church quickly turned into a Berks County culinary tradition featuring authentic Greek cuisine and delectable desserts.

Live Greek music and intricate Greek dances greet you and transport you to Athens as you step into the Main Dining Room and Social Hall. Enjoy a Greek food platter featuring half Athenian Style Chicken, souvlaki over rice pilaf, and authentic Greek side dishes. (Greek-style fish plaki will be featured Friday night only.)
