Oh the gyro, how we love a good gyro! We always look forward to the Greek Festival in Poughkeepsie.

Attendees can sample Greek cuisine, music, and dance at events that are often fundraisers for Orthodox churches in the Greek Archdiocese.
The Poughkeepsie Greek Festival is a celebration of the food, music and culture of the Hellenic people hosted for over 40 years at the Kimisis Greek Orthodox Church. We always look forward to attending this event and having a delicious gyro!
