The 19th Annual Los Angeles Greek Festival,

The LA Greek Fest is the largest and most iconic Greek food and wine festival in Los Angeles, California bringing over 15,000 attendees together for a three day weekend of Greek food, wine, traditional Greek dancing and one-of-a-kind cultural experiences. Located at Pico and Normandie on the same grounds of one of LA’s most beautiful and well-known Greek Orthodox Cathedrals - Saint Sophia Cathedral, the festival brings together the community of the Byzantine-Latino Quarter, people from all over downtown Los Angeles and Southern California.

Hosted by honorary chairs and co-hosts Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, the weekend is a must-see full of live music, incredible homemade Greek food, dancing, Cathedral tours and more.

Year after year, the Saint Sophia LA Greek Fest community comes together to support, volunteer and donate their valuable time and money to this amazing celebration of faith, culture, food and dance. All proceeds benefit Saint Sophia Cathedral and its newly built and expansive community center – The Huffington Center and to help further develop the surrounding community.

Hourly tours of Saint Sophia Cathedral, a religious gem and world-renowned architectural and national landmark, is held throughout the LA Greek Fest weekend.

The LA Greek Fest and Saint Sophia Cathedral are located at 1324 S. Normandie Ave., (corner of Pico and Normandie).
