Overview
Additional Information

Rockford Greek Fest is an annual food and music festival held on the grounds of Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church in downtown Rockford, IL. We celebrate our Greek heritage by offering authentic Greek foods such as souvlakia (pork shish-kabobs), Grecian chicken, rice pilaf and salad, spinach and cheese phyllo pies, loukaniko (Greek sausage), pastitso (layered beef and pasta with bechamel sauce, gyros in pita bread, saganaki (flaming cheese), hot dogs and more. 

The Pastry Tent will sell homemade baklava, melomacarouna (honey dipped cookies), diples (light, flaky cinnamon flavored pastry), hot loukoumades (warm honey puffs) and baklava ice cream sundaes and frappes. Lovely homemade breads as well! 

There are lots of activities for children.

Adults can enjoy a variety of Greek beers and wine at the Taverna. Our Agora (Marketplace) will offer imported items like music CDs, books, jewlery, dresses, T-shirts, sweatshirts, aprons, art pieces, beautiful icons and more. As part of sharing our culture, we invite visitors to take a tour of our church and see the beautiful iconography displayed and learn about the elements of our faith.

The Festival will begin with Men of our Times performing Friday 7pm-10pm. On Saturday and Sunday guests will enjoy listening to lively Grecina music and watching our Hellenic Dancers perform. 

Raffle tickets for $10 and 50/50 raffle tickets will be available for a chance to win cash prizes. There is FREE ADMISSION all weekend. Come eat, drink, dance and be Greek!
