A Festival Charity Profile in the Holy Land

A portion (10%) of the Anderson Greek Festival Plus proceeds to benefit the Orthodox School of Bethany in the Holy Land.  (The Festival proceeds will also benefit other charities in the Anderson area and in the Holy Land) >>>

What is the significance of Bethany?
Bethany is first and foremost a place very close to Christ, and where His friend Lazarus, along with his sisters Martha and Mary, lived. It was here that He accomplished one of the greatest miracles, the resurrection of Lazarus, who had been dead for four days. Our community is within walking distance of the tomb of Lazarus, and on our property lies a small chapel enclosing the rock where St. Martha met Jesus on his journey from Jerusalem to Bethany. Additionally, we are home to the Orthodox School of Bethany. The school is one of the best private school for girls in the area and was established in 1937 educating both Christian and Muslim children together.

A Message from The Anderson Greek Festival Plus Director, 2018

Greetings (Yassou) from The Greek Festival Plus Director … The 2018 Anderson Greek Festival Plus to take place September 14, 15 and 16 at the Civic Center of Anderson. One of several opportunities for the community to come together for food, music, fun and fellowship. We were honored to be voted “Best Annual Community Event" 2015 and 2017. Through the years, we have added activities to the Festival to keep the event fresh for our guests. This year, we added "Plus" to our name and logo to promote our other non-Greek entertainment. Offering new activities while keeping our Greek culinary base and mission.

Hospitality is an important thing in the Mediterranean (Greek) culture and in the South; therefore, we are delighted to present the 13th Annual Anderson Greek Festival Plus with the help of our sponsors and volunteers from the Greek communities of Anderson, Seneca and Greenville.

Proceeds from the Festival will be benefitting  causes in the Holy Land and charities in the Anderson area. And also to support The Shepherd's Guild outreach fund.
The organizer of the Festival is The Shepherd’s Guild, a 501c3 nonprofit service organization of Eastern Orthodox.
Come join us in September!
