Santa Barbara Greek Festival Returns to Oak Park for Its 38th Year

Oak Park will transform into a Greek village this weekend for the 38th Annual S.B. Greek Festival. While exploring the miniature Mediterranean municipality, stop by the Greek boutiques to taste authentic ethnic foods and shop for imported clothing and jewelry. Then, voyage to the village’s Parthenon Stage to watch traditional performances by award-winning Greek dance troupes, hear live music by the Hellenic Sounds and the Village Greeks, and much more. The fest runs from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, July 30-31, at 640 Junipero Street. Admission is free. Call 201-1620 for more info.
