Weekdays 10:00AM-3:00PM

One of Charlotte locals favorite events, the Yiasou Greek Festival just announced a massive change to their format this year, all due to the surge of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

The Yiasou Greek Festival is help every year (except 2020) at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Dillworth. The event usually draws in thousands of people, and while organizers were planning for the event to be all outdoors this year, with the new surges of COVID-19 cases due to the Delta variant, the organizers just announced that the event will now change to a drive-thru only experience this year.

Cars will line up in the church parking lot, and there will be musical entertainment while you wait to pick up your food.

I’ve only had the opportunity to go to the Yiasou Greek Festival once, and after seeing the crowd sizes, I think organizers are making the correct decision. I will definitely be stopping by for some of that Greek food though!


The event is scheduled to take place September 9 through September 12.
