The Semaphore Greek Festival, South Australia’s Hellenic festival, is to celebrate its 39th year this weekend, on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 January.
The two-day Semaphore Greek Cultural Festival is held at the Semaphore foreshore every January. It is situated next to the Semaphore jetty, close to the children’s playground and the foreshore amusements.
Since 1985, the festival showcases and celebrates Greek culture and heritage within South Australia’s broader multicultural context. Many generations of local volunteers, dedicate endless hours to make the festival a success from the initial planning to preparing traditional Greek food and sweets to serving thousands of visitors attending the event.
Live music and traditional Greek dancing by local dance groups and the delicious foods are the great attractions on both days.
Established by the Greek Orthodox Community of Port Adelaide, the Semaphore Greek Festival attracted a record 37,000 visitors last year.
Greek Australian chef George Diakomichalis, and Greek journalist and radio producer Theodora Maios will be the MCs for both days. Local Greek radio station Radio ENA will broadcast selectively from the main stage and the general festival site.
Look out for our #sema4greekfest TVC on Antenna Pacific throughout the week. Antenna is the premier Greek channel in Greece and around the world. Antenna is now available on FOXTEL, OPTUS, MY SAT across Australia.
