The festival has grown since it began 30 years ago and now attracts thousands of people every year. Greek pastries, gyros, k-bobs and lamb are a few of the items you will find on the menu at the various food tents. They also have a drive through menu for those who do not want to stop and look around. If you do stop and look around, you will find many cultural activities, cultural dancing and entertainment on an outdoor stage. There is also an Old World Market inside the church activity center. A special fun play area has been created for kids. The church Priest also will offer brief cultural histories and stories about the Greek Orthodox Church and religion in the church sanctuary at various times throughout the day. 2014 marks the 101st year anniversary for the church in Little Rock. The International Greek Food Festival has donated more than $1 million to more than 20 charities that serve children, families and communities throughout central Arkansas.
