Mt. Lebanon, PA

Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church’s food festival is one of the great Greek food festivals of Pittsburgh. Located in the heart of Mt. Lebanon, the festival evokes the sights, sounds, and tastes that define the traditional Greek way of life. This year’s festival will be June 11-14, from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Our outside tent area features gyros, savory souvlaki, lamb chops, shrimp skewers, fried loukoumades, pastries, and drinks at the Taverna, and can be enjoyed on our beautiful veranda overlooking Mt. Lebanon. Inside, you’ll find Greek delicacies such as oregano chicken, pastitsio, moussaka, our famous lamb shank, tiropita, spanakopita, stuffed grape leaves, and so much more. Listen to the distinctive sounds of the bouzouki and other exotic instruments played by authentic Greek musicians, and delight in the beauty of traditional folk dancing by performers in elaborate costumes.
