The Greek Festival of Saginaw will host a two day drive thru, August 21-22, 11 am to 7 pm, at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 4970 Mackinaw Road, on the corner of Mackinaw and McCarty Roads. The annual Greek Festival was canceled this year because of COVID-19. The Greek Fest Drive Thru will offer a safe alternative with many of the usual menu favorites.

The menu for the Greek Fest Drive Thru will include gyros, Greek fries, baklava, spinach pie, and stuffed grape leaves. Guests may pay with cash or credit.

The Greek Fest Drive Thru will take strict health safety measures for the protection of guests during the pandemic. Safety measures among volunteers include mandatory masks, social distancing, repeat surface sanitation, temperature checks, and health questionnaires.

The Greek Festival began in 1979 as a way of sharing the faith and culture of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church. It is already planning for a full return in 2021.

The Greek Festival contributes to a wide range of local organizations and charities. Recent recipients include the CAN Council, City Rescue Mission, East Side Soup Kitchen, Hidden Harvest, Mustard Seed Shelter, Nouvel Catholic Central, Restoration Community Outreach, and Underground Railroad.
