Victorian Labor commits $400,000 towards the Oakleigh Greek Glendi


The Victorian Labor Party has announced that if re-elected it will commit $400,000 in funding over the next four years to support the Oakleigh Greek Glendi.

The Oakleigh Greek Glendi attracts over 30,000 people every year and is a celebration of cultural diversity with an emphasis on Greek culture through music, performance and food.

The Victorian Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, Steve Dimopoulos MP, said a re-elected Labor Government will support the Glendi.

“We’re proud of our diversity. Our multiculturalism. It’s why we’ve supported festivals across Victoria,” Mr Dimopoulos said on Facebook.

“A re-elected Labor Government will support our Glendi – celebrating Melbourne’s vibrant and proud Greek culture.”

The Oakleigh Greek Glendi is managed and presented by The Greek Orthodox Community of Oakleigh & District and Oakleigh Grammar.
