Put down your ouzo sorbet and hop to the dance floor, the Greek Festival is back! After a short hiatus in 2013, the celebration of Greek culture, food and dancing returns for its 33rd year. Think fresh-made gyros (the menu even includes vegan items), performances by the Nisiotes Dancers and booths where you can shop or learn about orthodoxy.

“Everything is authentic,” says Austin Vali, festival chairman. “It’s the closest way to go to Greece without leaving the Islands. It’s a total party.” Tip: If you want fresh-baked pastries, get there early in the day, before they’re gone.

The Greek Festival takes place Aug. 23 and 24 from noon to 9 p.m. at the McCoy Pavilion in Ala Moana Beach Park. Admission is $3, free for children under 12 and active
military. greekfestivalhawaii.com.
