September is a fantastic time of year to take a vacation to Myrtle Beach. Of course, a Myrtle Beach vacation is a great idea year round, but if you’re into milder temperatures it’s tough to go wrong with an early fall Grand Strand getaway. And if you take a trip to Myrtle Beach during the last weekend of September, you should definitely check out the St. John’s Greek Festival, one of Myrtle Beach’s most popular cultural celebrations!
A favorite fall event for over two decades, this year is the 26th year that St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church has hosted this celebration of all things Greek. The 2018 festival runs from Thursday, September 27 to Sunday, September 30. Throughout the grounds of the festival, guests will be able to peruse a tempting array of Greek culinary delights including baklava, spanakopita or authentic gyros with lamb or chicken. Whatever you do, make sure that you bring a hearty appetite to the Greek Festival! And after a satisfying snack or meal adults can try authentic Greek beers and wines or try ouzo, an aperitif popular in Greece. The event is great for families with kid-friendly attractions like inflatables and guests of all ages are sure to enjoy the live music and dancing all weekend long. Lots of arts and crafts vendors will be showcasing handmade souvenirs for sale and guests can also take guided tours of the gorgeous St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church.
With a weekend jam-packed with food, fun and fellowship, the St. John’s Greek Festival is an absolute must for visitors to Myrtle Beach!
