The Myrtle Beach Greek Festival begins today and runs October 15th and 16th from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The cost is free. St. John The Baptist Greek Orthodox Church holds the event every year.
The church is located at 3301 33rd Ave Ext. North in Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
Due to COVID-19 concerns, a drive-thru festival will be held again this year.
Staff say it’s a way to bring Greek heritage and culture into Myrtle Beach.
People can order traditional Greek meals and pastries, pay and get their food without leaving their car. “People can pre-order online at myrtlebeachgreekfestival.com so they can order what they like or get the delicious desserts they want. Then, they want you to enter from 29th avenue and then turn on Church Street so that way you are coming from behind the church and to come on to the grounds where they will provide you with your food,” Vasilios Pournaras said.
