CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Since the 1950s, Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church in Campbell has hosted its Greek Food & Wine Festival.

This year, the tradition carries on all weekend long.

Every night, delicious food and pastries are being served up inside while Greek dance performances take place outside.

There are thousands of traditional Greek dances that kids start learning when they’re in kindergarten. As they get older, they’ll do the dances at christenings and weddings.

“We’re not in Greece so this is the only way to keep the culture alive is to teach them from a young age and they love it,” said dance group director Katina Korfias.

The festival continues Saturday and Sunday from noon until 10 p.m. on 12th Street.

It’s free to go, but you may want to take some money because the Greek food and wine they have are amazing.

All money raised goes back to help the church.
