St. Louis County Greek Festival

Jon Gitchoff
How do you know when summer starts and ends in St. Louis? Easy: Check the Greek festival location. The St. Louis County Greek Festival at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church (1755 Des Peres Road, Town & Country; www.stlouisgreekfest.com) is the starter pistol for summer, while the Greek festival in the city is the checkered flag. Start the sweaty season the right way, with a veritable Mt. Olympus of Greek food, live music and folk dancing, a kids corner with a bounce house, and a traditional Old World market offering Hellenic souvenirs, jewelry and even groceries. The St. Louis County Greek Festival is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday (May 24 to 27). Admission is free, but bring your wallet — you can't smell roast lamb shanks and not buy some, no matter how tough you think you are.
