Yes, the centuries-old culture of Greece will be honored in Cobb this weekend with traditional song and goods for sale, but there’s also the food: grilled meats, heaps of hummus, honey-soaked treats.
So get both your dance and your grub on at the Marietta Greek Festival on Friday from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The event is free for children 12 and younger, but adults must pay $5 to enter. Proceeds will go to organizations like the Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity. Also, no animals are allowed unless required by law.
Live entertainment runs from 2 p.m. to nearly 11 p.m. the first two days, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
As for the food, we’ll let the menu online speak for itself.
There will be cooking demonstrations throughout the festival and a children’s area with face painting, arts and crafts and a playground.
Looking for something more serious than paint on your face? Go on a 30-minute tour of the church and learn about the architecture and history. Here’s the tour schedule.
