A Message from The Greek Festival Director

Greetings (Yassou) from The Greek Festival Director … We cordially invite you to this community event, an annual event for all. One of several opportunities for the community to come together for food, fun and fellowship. We were honored to be voted “Best Annual Community Event 2015." New additions to the Festival will take place this year to keep the event fresh and to grow the number of guests.
Hospitality is an important thing in the Mediterranean (Greek) culture and in the South; therefore, we are delighted to present the 11th Annual Anderson Greek Festival with the help of the Greek communities of Seneca and Greenville.
The organizer of the Festival is The Shepherd’s Guild, a 501c3 nonprofit service organization of Eastern Orthodox.
Come join us!
