This weekend my loved ones and I attended to the 39th annual Saint Sophia Greek Festival here in Miami. The festival takes place Each Year in February from Friday through Sunday.
Even the St. Sophia Greek Festival is a family friendly event such as Greek food and beverages, market booths, Greek dancing, songs, and an entertainment area for the kids.
The church is usually open for all who want to have a look it is onto the festival itself.
The exterior area has markets selling artwork, souvenirs, art and crafts, clothes, jewelry, and average Greek products. There burgers — gyros and vendors selling average tavern cuisine.
Inside there’s tons of Greek meals to attempt including moussaka, Zouzoukakia meatballs, pastitsio (Greek model of lasagna), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), salad, spanakopita spinach pies, and much more. Prices range from $5 to $15 for a main dish with two sides.
As for me, I’d recommend having a delectable slice of moussaka using a side of roasted potatoes and a salad and skipping the exterior food.
For dessert look no further than the women the yummy loukoumadesdough balls drizzled with honey and powdered sugar.
At approximately 1:15 PM the kids dance troupe began dancing into traditional Greek tunes. Music and folk dancing is a significant part of Greek culture and shouldn’t be missed!
I’d suggest exploring the markets heading to the festival around 11 AM, having some lunch and sticking out to observe the dancing. You may also head to enjoy the rides should you want. Adult admission is $5, children under 12 are free.
Even the St. Sophia Greek Festival takes place Friday and Saturday 11 AM — 11 PM and on Sunday from noon to 9 PM.
The address is 244 SW 24th Rd..
