For the 22nd year, the St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church members prepare feverishly for their annual Festival, an ethnic celebration of authentic Greek food, music and dance, starting on June 9 and ending on the June 11, in Troy.
The ‘Best Little Festival in Town’ is a culinary treat, first and foremost, and St. Basil members are particularly proud of the reputation they have earned as having the best food in the tri-city area! Guests can sample homemade Greek dishes, such as souvlaki, moussaka, lamb with potatoes and pastichio. A number of ‘mezedes‘ (little tastes) and vegetarian dishes such as stuffed peppers and spinach pie (our famous spanakopita) can be followed by the famous ‘Never on Sunday‘ ice cream or sweets like baklava, kourabiedes and loukoumathes.
