St. Louis County Greek Fest

When: May 27-29, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Mon., May 30, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. 2016

The first official day of summer is still a few weeks away, but the unofficial start of summer is already here: It's time for the St. Louis County Greek Fest. The family-friendly festival is a great way to ease into the season, thanks to its bounty of food, live music and folk dancing, as well a unique marketplace. This year's St. Louis County Greek Fest takes place from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday (May 27 to 30) at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church (1755 Des Peres Road, Town & Country; www.stlouisgreekfest.com). Admission is free.
