Greek Fest Darling Harbour postponed due to weather conditions

·

Due to the current weather conditions in Sydney, the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW under the direction of Property NSW, has been forced to make the difficult decision of postponing the Greek Fest Darling Harbour that was scheduled to take place this Sunday, 13 March.

“Following a meeting with Property NSW, we were faced with concerns of not being able to deliver an effective and safe festival in the current conditions,” Festival Chair, Nia Karteris, said.

“Even if this weather was to clear up, we would still have problems with many other issues such as power and turf conditions.”

The Festival Committee is in discussions for a new and suitable date which will be announced shortly.

Linked to the Darling Harbour celebration is the nine-week-long Greek Festival of Sydney, with over 30 events scheduled in this year’s quality program line-up. The Greek Festival of Sydney is an initiative of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW.
