The Roanoke Greet Festival kicks off Friday.

30,000 visitors are expected to attend the three day event. 

Organizers say it’s one way to truly experience authentic Greek food, music, and community.

“We’re a very loving community. The Greeks have migrated from their homeland of Greece, and brought their all of their family dishes. Everything is Greek. Even the water is Greek,” said Pete Simopoulos, chairman of the Roanoke Greek Festival.

The festival is held at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church.  It runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m Friday and Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 7 p.m on Sunday.  Admission is free.
