FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Holy Cross Greek Food Festival?
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 with hand-prepared Greek delicacies, live music and traditional folk dancing, and shopping in our marketplace. For almost half a century, the Greek food festival has shared the traditional Greek way of life while providing an important fundraiser for our church.

Where are you located?
You’ve probably noticed the white church on the hill with the gold dome if you’re traveling south on Rt19 from downtown Mt. Lebanon. Our church is located near the intersection of Washington Rd (Route 19) and Gilkeson Road, at 123 Gilkeson Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15228, directly across the street from the Galleria in Mt. Lebanon.

Do you offer take-out?
Yes! You can always enter the main food line in the community center, and our volunteers will be happy to pack up your food. You can also choose from a limited menu from our online Pick-Up menu and we’ll deliver your food curbside.
