The Glendi International Food Festival is Santa Rosas premier ethnic food and dance event. Each year, on the third Saturday and Sunday of September since 1989, the Parish has hosted this festival of foods from Russia, Romania, the Middle East, the Balkans, Greece and Eritrea. The food is all fresh and ethnically authentic.
Dance to live music by EDESSA both days at our GLENDI, which is Greek for party. We have a great entertainment schedule with dancers, dance lessons, and acapella choirs. You are also welcome to visit our churches at any time throughout the day. The church tours and talks are conducted by our principle iconographer and others within our community.
Along with great food and ongoing music, door prizes are drawn throughout each day. Enjoy a stroll through the gardens or take a church tour that explains the meaning behind the structure and iconography of an Orthodox Church and highlights the timeless frescoes that adorn the interior.
Glendi is all about fun and family! In addition to the food, dancing, and tours we have a Childrens Area with entertaining activities both days.
Beverages include beer from local microbreweries and an impressive selection of wines. As it cools off in the evening, try our Greek, Eritrean or regular coffee with ethnic sweets from our bakery including homemade baklava, and the new Baklava Sundae.
