Eat a day the Greek way! On Friday, October 13 from 4 pm-7pm, Saturday October 14 from 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday, October 15 from 12 pm-6 pm St. Anne Orthodox Church will host the Mid-Valley’s 20th annual Greek Food Fest at historic Lewisburg Hall, 6000 NE Elliott Circle, Corvallis. NOTE: All days of this year's festival will be held under the main tent as a traditional in-person event with no drive-thru.
The St. Anne Greek Fest has become a popular, family-friendly, mid-valley tradition and is one of only two Greek festivals in the state. Proceeds from the event help pay for the renovation and maintenance of the historic Lewisburg Grange Hall.
The St. Anne Greek Fest offers authentic Greek dinners, desserts, wine and spirits, crafts and live Greek music and dancing. The menu includes pork souvlaki, braised lamb with carrots and potatoes, pasticcio, fasolia, spanakopita, vegan or meat-stuffed grape-leaves (dolmas) and Moroccan chicken. Complete dinners served with Greek salad, rice pilaf and pita bread will be offered for $20.00 for three entrees and a seven-entree Tailgater platter for $37. A la carte, to-go items and Greek desserts will also be available. Desserts include baklava, galatoboureko (custard-filled filo drizzled with honey syrup), melamakorona (honey cakes) and a variety of homemade cakes.
There is no admission fee for any part of the festival and free event parking is available along Elliott Circle and at Mountain View Elementary School.

About the Grange Hall -- Located near the intersection of Highway 99W and Lewisburg Road, the Lewisburg Grange Hall was originally built in 1911 as a train depot and mercantile. It was used by the railroad for only a short time before it was turned over to the local Mountain View Grange. The building was restored in the early 90’s by Tim and Linda Dodson. It was purchased in 2003 by St. Anne Orthodox Church and is rented out for parties, meetings and other special occasions.
