Greek Festivals in Southern California have developed quite a following. Almost every Greek Orthodox church has an annual festival to benefit the church. Fans of Greek folk dancing, music and food gravitate from one celebration to another throughout the season. Festival entrance fees range from free to $5, so they count on patrons to eat lots of gyros, souvlakia and baklava to raise funds.
