Traditions

Kassian Festivals are typically organized by the local communities of Greek-Kassian Orthodox Churches. The local churches, beyond a place of religious worship, is usually the centre of cultural activities of the local community. There is usually a committee of volunteers within the community that is formed particularly for the purpose of organizing the Greek Festival. This organizing effort takes months of preparation and nearing the days of the Church Festival many more volunteers are mobilized. The highly noted in these festival days are the numerous ladies (and often gentlemen) who are known in the community for their mastery and skill in cooking traditional Greek food. This is why the food at Kassian festivals has a distinct home made taste and presentation that is well known worldwide. Please note that food and wine are free of charge. There is a minimal charge for soft drinks.
Another usual attraction is the demonstration of traditional Kassian dances performed by anyone that likes to participate.
