This year we are excited to host you in an all new experience with the same fascinating world of Greek culture, faith, tradition, and cuisine. We will welcome you with the same philoxenia (meaning love of showing hospitality to strangers) and kefi (meaning fun) that Atlanta has come to know and love.
