PHOENIX - The long-running Original Phoenix Greek Festival returns this weekend after taking last year off because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 60th edition of the popular tradition runs Friday-Sunday at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 1973 E. Maryland Ave.

The event features a wide variety of Greek food — including lamb shank, moussaka, spanakopita and bakery treats - as well as live music, dance performances and lessons, and shopping.

The festivities run from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is $5 per day, with no charge for kids under 12 and free entry for people over 60 on Saturday before 3 p.m. No pets are permitted.

Parking on the church lot costs $5, but there's a free shuttle service available all weekend at the southwest corner of 24th Street and Lincoln Drive.
