Looking to feast on the ambrosia of the gods? The 39th annual Greek Festival at Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a beloved Richmond tradition and for good reason. The always festive, four-day event features homemade cuisine and imported spirits from the country’s nine geographic regions. It also offers traditional Hellenic music and dancing and a market with vendors selling everything Greek. A portion of the proceeds benefit local charities. The festival runs Thursday-Sunday, May 29-June 1. For information call 358-5996 or visit greekfestival.com.
