Greek Fest takes over Sydney’s Darling Harbour Precinct on 17 & 18 February 2018. With free music entertainment, Greek food and drinks, market stalls, dance performances and more, this much-loved festival is an event for all ages. In 2018, audiences are in for a treat on Sunday evening with a free performance by Cretan native Giannis Haroulis who will take to the stage to perform a mixture of Greek folk, traditional Cretan music, as well as contemporary Greek songs.
Haroulis is currently one of the most successful artists in Greece. His concerts are highly energetic, and his ability to connect with his audience has seen his career go from strength to strength. In addition to the 100 or so shows he performs each year, he has also recorded music for television. He combines old traditional Cretan music with contemporary modern music to create experimental rhythms that will enchant audiences.
Any Greek celebration is not complete without a feast and the 2018 Greek Fest is no different. From food stalls, to home cooking, sweet treats and savoury mezedes, the Festival will have something on offer for all the lovers of Greek cuisine. Sydney can feast on the best that the Greek kitchen has to offer so go with an empty stomach, and comfy shoes and get set to eat, drink and dance the night away.
Indubitably one of the most prominent multicultural events in Sydney, and a must do in the events calendar, Greek Fest Darling Harbour will give Sydneysiders a taste of Greece as the foreshore of Darling Harbour comes alive. 2018’s program is new and exciting, sure to showcase the richest display of Greek culture in Australia.
