Greek Festival in Houston – Brief History

In 1917, a handful of Greek immigrants formed what is today one of the largest Greek Orthodox communities in the United States. The vision, foresight and dedication of these few faithful immigrants laid the foundation for what exists today.

From its original location in downtown Houston (what is now Tranquility Park) to the expansive grounds that line Yoakum Boulevard, the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation has become a major force in religious communities and social groups that make up Houston today.

A portion of the proceeds from the Greek Festival has helped many people through donations to various charities, such as the Children’s Assessment Center, SEARCH, the Houston Area Women’s Center, Covenant House, the Texas Emergency Aid Coalition (EAC), and the Mission Star of Hope.

There are also other Greek festivals in Texas, including the Galveston Greek Festival and the Austin Greek Festival!
