Greek culture celebrated at the World of Food Festival 2021 in Perth

·

There was plenty of Greek dancing, sweets and filotimo on display at the World of Food Festival 2021 in Perth, Western Australia on Sunday.

Hundreds of people attended the festival which was organised by the Consular Corps of WA and was hosted at the WA Government House Gardens.

For the first time this year, the Greek stall was joined by a dedicated European Union stall, which celebrated the food, culture and diversity of EU member states such as Estonia, Italy and Spain.

While attendees were making the most of their favourite cultural delicacies, including melamakarona and bougatsa from The Greek Plate, a main stage was also set up where dancers showcased traditional cultural dances.

Students from St Andrew’s Grammar in WA made the Greek contingent proud with their dynamic performance of Greek folk dances.

The EU Anthem, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” was also performed on stage.

“Well done to the organisers of this event. So much great food to try and take home. Wonderful performances from a wide variety of cultural groups with performers from all ages – and a beautiful setting,” one attendee wrote on social media.

It’s clear the event went without a hitch and we can’t wait to see what’s planned for next year’s extravanganza!
