After holding its annual Greek food festival at three different locations within four years, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church has plenty of reasons to celebrate as members settle into their new home.

The church will hold Taste of Greece, its largest Greek food festival, at its new location at Babcock Boulevard and Cumberland Road in McCandless Township.

Prior to that, the church was located for 80 years on Pittsburgh’s North Side. It also found a temporary home at the former Northway Elementary School in Ross before opening at its new location June 22.

The festival kicks off Wednesday, Aug. 28 and will feature food, Greek wine, entertainment, activities and more through Sunday, Sept. 1.

Festival co-chairman Gerri Valliant told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this would be the church’s largest, and longest, festival yet.

"We've increased our food amounts 68 percent across the board," he said.

The festival hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

The PG reports there will be parking and frequent shuttles available from Lowe's Home and Garden Center's parking lot and the lot at Empire Palace restaurant in the McCandless Corporate Center.
