The 39th Sydney Greek Festival, which was named the Festival of the Revolution, had a promising start.
The program of events was presented at a brilliant event in a Greek diaspora center in the suburb of Brighton Le Sands, Sydney, on Wednesday night. Those involved in the administration of the Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales and the Feastival, the consulate authorities, representatives of political parties and governments, representatives of sponsors, artists and other volunteers in the events attended the event.
The program includes over 40 events, most of which touch on themes and aspects of the Greek Revolution of 1821.
The Festival starts with a big music event at the Enmore Theater, today, Friday, March 5.
“Under the auspices of the New South Wales government and various supporters and sponsors, the Sydney Greek Festival invited all to a music night with George Doukas, D Strings and Hcho Nyx, as well as dance performances by various dance groups,” as mentioned in an announcement of the Festival as reported by vema.com.au.
“The event is offered free of charge to the Greek community and complies with all measures and specifications regarding protection against COVID-19,” said to the Greek Program of the State Radio SBS, the President of the Organizing Committee of the Festival and Vice-president of the Community, Ourania Karteri.
“The Greek Festival returns after a difficult year. The Festival will not be held at Darling Harbor for the first time since 2004. We hope to return with more energy in 2022 to the well-known location of Tumbalong Park,” pointed out Karteri.
“This initiative, which belongs to the Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales, is dedicated this year to the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution. The program we have prepared aims at the best promotion of Greek culture and culture in Australia,” noted the president of the Organizing Committee of the Festival.
