Greek fair comes to Broomall
September 3, 2012 by James
A bit of Mediterranean flair will be coming to Broomall in the third week of September.
The 35th annual Greek Fair will take place at St. Luke’s Greek Orthodox Church. This year’s fair, also known as the Greek Affair, will feature dance and music from Greece, tasty food, and amusements for children. There will also be a raffle, with the top cash prize being $1,000.
A key feature of this each year’s fair is the Monastiraki – a flea market modeled after those in Greece. In the country’s capital, Athens, Monostiraki is the main shopping district. Broomall’s equivalent will feature a wide range of items for sale, all of them donated by the community.
Food and drink play an important role during the Greek Fair. Traditional Greek dishes such as spanakopita (spinach pie) and dolmades will be available, as will such desserts as baklava and katifi. Greek wine, beer, and ouzo will also be available to drink.
The Greek Affair’s organizers can take advantage of flyer printing in Broomall to promote the upcoming event. Flyers can be hung at local businesses and distributed to people in shopping centers nearby to promote the event.
Taking place from September 19 – 23, the fair’s first night will be Family Night, on which families can purchase a pass for the rides at the Fair for one low price. The band Neo Kyma will be providing musical entertainment during each night of the fair, as a part of the Outdoor Taverna. The Fair opens at 11:00 am each day, while the Taverna will open at 8:00 pm each evening.
