You don't need an oracle to convince you of Yiasou Greek Festival's allure. The long-time event celebrating Greek culture is a big deal in Charlotte, and for good reason: food ("Athenian" baked fish, gyros, Grecian baked chicken, spanakopita, Greek salads, baklava, galaktobouriko, loukoumades and more), entertainment (music and dance), cultural displays and exhibits, lectures, an open-air market, tours of the cathedral and men in full Greco-styled warrior gear. There's a reason folks end up coming out for more than one day, and it's not just because they didn't buy enough sweets - though that may be part of it. Did I mention they even have a baklava ice cream sundae? Also, be sure to register for a chance to win a trip to Greece while you're there.
