If you’re in need of something to do this weekend, look no further then Ann Arbor’s annual Ya’ssoo Greek Festival.
Hosted every year by the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Scio Township, the festival celebrates Greek heritage.
The event, which was revived after a 23-year break four years ago, will feature traditional Greek food, wines, beers and liquors.
There will also be cultural exhibits documenting the history of the Ann Arbor Greek community.
Other offerings include a market place, church tours and a raffle giving those who buy tickets a chance to win a trip to
Greece, the Cayman Islands or other prizes.
Another feature are the bands Enigma and Kefi which will play live, Greek music. The St. Nicholas Dancers and the Kyklos Hellenic Dancers will also be out to provide entertainment for those who want to have a taste of Greek culture close to home.
The church, which is where the festival is held, is located at 3109 Scio Church Rd. in Ann Arbor.
The festival begins Friday at 11 a.m. and continues through Saturday and Sunday. Admission is three dollars, but if you want a chance to have a good time soaking up the culture for free, come by on Sunday when it si free to the public.
