2024 BELMONT GREEK FESTIVAL - August 31 and September 1

Summer's here and we're excited to kick off planning and preparation for our 52nd annual Belmont Greek Festival! Like last year, the Festival will be 2 days and 2 nights, the weekend immediately prior to Labor Day: Saturday, August 31 - Sunday, September 1. Parishioners: if you chaired an area last year, or are interested in chairing something this year, please reach out to me to confirm so we can begin our summer: or 415-407-9561.    


We've begun to collect Sponsorships for our food areas and Program Book sales are open. Act now while Sponsorship opportunities are still available; lock in a place in our Program Book; and ask your favorite local businesses to place an ad as well. Please contact Chris Canellos at for more information. 


Any ancient Greek gods and goddesses out there? All young actors interested in a role in the popular Greek mythology play during the Belmont Greek Festival should contact Helene Nemchik, 650-224-4809, or, ASAP. Act now before roles are filled. Actors must be able to perform twice a day during the festival (Aug. 31 & Sept. 1) and rehearse the last three weeks of August (late afternoon/ early evening) including each day during the final week.
