Get Thee to the Greek! (Festival)

Puns aside, this Greek festival hosted by Saints Constantine and Helen Church in downtown Brooklyn looks like fun. Starting June 7, Schermerhorn Street between Boerum Place and Court Street will be filled with merrymaking by, for and about Greek culture. 

Reminding me of my old church's bazaar, a White Elephant sale will be held, and a gift shop will be operating as  well. Food and pastries will be served, and the weekends promise music (DJ) and dance performances. Those toting tots will find a few activities for them as well.

The church is located just outside the prime Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill neighborhoods, and is down the street from the Court Street Barnes & Noble and Court Street United Artist Cinemas. If you are on your way to Trader Joe's (2 blocks away), stop by and have some real spanakopita before heading over TJ's to pick up the frozen version.

When: June 7-13
Where: Sts Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church  -  64 Schermerhorn Street
