Opa! Holy Trinity Preps For Its Greek Food Festival
PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) - Gyros. Stuffed Grape Leaves. Spanakopita. Baklava. If your mouth is watering, then Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church is the place to be Wednesday, Aug. 28 through Sunday, Sept. 1.
Holy Trinity’s food festival has been a Pittsburgh tradition for over 40 years on the North Side, and now you can support the church at their new location in the North Hills at the corner of Babcock Boulevard and Cumberland Road, across from UPMC Passavant Hospital.
KDKA-AM’s Larry and John talk to Fr. John Touloumes and Lou Loomas about everything you need to know about this year’s festival. Fr. John says that festivals like this one are how they were able to build their new church and keep it funded.
“Greeks love to open their homes, and this being the biggest and most beautiful home we’ve had, we’re very excited to open it to the public,” says Fr. John.
This event will be the biggest event they’ve had at the new church. During their recent open house, 1,500 people came through to tour the new facility in just 6 hours.
