September in Las Vegas! Finally, the temperatures usually begin cooling off a bit. Generally, it’s a perfect time for deliciously fun food festivals in Las Vegas. With this in mind, there are three big ones planned for this month on successive weekends. Let’s check them out!
First Up: The Annual Greek Food Festival
By and large, my wife and I have been attending the annual Greek Food Festival since the 1990’s. We love it! The crowds are huge, and yes, there are long lines, but overall it’s worth the wait. Live bands perform traditional Greek music throughout the day and into the evening hours. There is also plenty of shopping to do for Greek pastries, Grecian artwork, clothing and jewelry as you browse in the market and bazaar.
This year, it’s the 50th Annual Greek Food Festival taking place at St. John The Baptist Greek Orthodox Church. You should plan on taking a tour through this beautiful church building. It’s magnificent. It’s located at 5300 El Camino Road in Las Vegas, 89118. Furthermore, this year’s three-day festival takes place Friday, September 15th through Sunday, September 17th. Festival hours are 3 p.m. until 11 p.m. Friday, and Noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
