Greek Fest returns to Sydney’s Brighton-Le-Sands after 21-year hiatus


The Greek Fest will return to Sydney’s Brighton-Le-Sands on Sunday, May 26, after a 21-year hiatus. Bay Street will be closed-off from 9am to 8pm to host the event.

This highly anticipated free event will be filled with music, Greek dancing, delicious Greek cuisine, and plenty of family-friendly activities.

Attendees will get the opportunity to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds, and flavours of Greece at the festival.

The last time Brighton-Le-Sands hosted the Greek Fest was in March 2003, where crowds of up to 100,000 people attended.

The event was scheduled to be held last year, but was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.

Now, after more than two decades, the beloved event is back as part of the Greek Festival of Sydney, with is an initiative of the Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales (GOCNSW).

Applications are open for stallholders to apply to participate in the Greek Fest. Those interested are encouraged to submit their applications to or call (02) 9750 0440.
