My Big Fat Greek Festival Comes to California

Published on: April 15, 2012

‘Tis the season for Greek festivals and it should be no surprise that an all star cast of Greek celebs show up to officiate & celebrate such events hosted in Los Angeles.  Actor/producer Tom Hanks and Greek wife Rita Wilson, who co-produced “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, have enjoyed participating in ceremonies at the L.A. Greek Fest the past several years. During their stint they have shared the stage with “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”  Grecian star, Nia Vardalos (seen with Wilson & Hanks in left photo.) Hanks says he feels 110% Greek — he joined the  Greek Orthodox Church when he married Wilson.

The truth about Greek festivals is that you never know who shows up, but the hosts make everyone feel like stars. If you’ve never attended a Greek Festival in California, this could be your year to do so! From the outrageously tasty foods– including roasted lamb, salads, pastries and desserts, to the dancing, drinking and fun atmosphere– Greeks are amazingly hospitable when it comes to throwing a party. Here are some upcoming dates around the state where you can be Greek, if only for a day.
