With lots of great events happening here in the East Bay, sometimes it
is hard to decide what to attend, and what to pass on until next year.
Well, one event not to miss, is the upcoming Oakland Greek Festival. Taking place at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension on Lincoln Avenue in the Oakland hills, this fantastic celebration takes place May 14, 15, and 16. So many great things to enjoy: live music, Greek dancing, imported goods, an incredible view of the Bay Area, and food, food, food. One definite item to indulge in, the Greek sausage. Still thinking about it from last year. And of course, the pastries. Eat some in the kafenion with a Greek coffee, and then grab some pre-wrapped on the steps of the church on your way out. More info and coupons on their website. Admission is $6 children under 12 free. Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension, 4700 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland 94602. May 14, 15, 16, Fri and Sat 10:00 am -11:00 pm, Sun 11:00 am-9:00 pm
Tip-for a little less crowd go Friday afternoon just as it kicks off. Less hassle for those juggling families etc.!
