The festival attracted a record crowd on the day and received support from many dignitaries and parliamentary colleagues.

In attendance was SA Premier Peter Malinauskas; Leader of the SA Liberal Party, David Speirs MP; Member for Dunstan, Steven Marshall MP; Member for Hartley, Vincent Tarzia MP; Member for Bragg, Jack Batty MP; Federal Member for Sturt, James Stevens MP; and President of the Norwood Parish, Andrew Psaromatis, among many others.

In a Twitter post, the SA Premier praised the volunteers and Norwood Parish for their dedication to the festival.

“The Norwood Greek Cultural Festival celebrates the amazing cultural heritage of one our proudest multicultural communities,” Mr Malinauskas said.

“Although a relatively young festival it has taken many more years of dedication from the Prophet of Elias community to make it the success it is today,” the Premier’s post read.

The festival included Greek food, performances from the Prophet Elias Dance Group and dance groups from the Ukrainian (SLAVA) and Messinian communities.
