The sunny season means festivals, and there’s seemingly a fest for everyone in Seattle. IMO, the best fest is a food fest, and the Bite of Greece is a chance to transport yourself to the Mediterranean—or at least your taste buds. 

For three days, the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, which lies a couple blocks east of Cal Anderson Park, highlights the food and culture of this community. Expect the usual suspects: GYROSSPANAKOPITADOLMADES! But also grab a bite of some of the less widely known goodies like LOUKOUMADES (!), one of the world’s oldest pastries, or TIROPITA, which is a cheese pie! UM YUM! Plus, grab a Greek beer, wine, or soda at the onsite Taverna to wash it down. 

Stay for the culture by enjoying traditional dancers and music—or join in when the line dancing begins! (Here’s a tutorial for practicing purposes.) 10% of Bite of Greece Seattle’s profits will go to the Washington Backpack Brigade, a non-profit to help end weekend hunger for kids. 

Note: The church has a parking lot, but the event is also a few blocks from the light rail station
