From the most authentic Chicken Souvlaki you’ll ever have in Winnipeg, to an energetic/heart pounding closing dance sequence dubbed as Zorbas Dance… the Greek Pavilion will have you yelling OPA! from the top of your lungs before it’s all over! The show is jam packed with vibrant and lively performances that are full of energy. Host and performers have constant interaction with the crowd and shows us why the Greek Pavilion will be one of the most exciting shows you see this year. While there, make sure to visit the beautiful St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church display.

Journey with us to the warm and inviting Greek Islands. You will be transported to the shores of the Mediterranean and experience Greek Island living with music, dances, food, and drink. The islands of Greece each have unique cultural elements, so join us as we go island-hopping and experience the dances and distinct traditions of the islands. Raise a glass of ouzo to the Kefi Greek Folk Dancers of Manitoba. Savour the flavours of Greece with the scent of souvlaki on the grill, and finish your meal with a plate of honey-drenched loukoumades. Take in the craftsmanship of specialty jewellery and home décor, as well as books and other cultural items brought in just for our pavilion. Experience the vibrancy and energy of Greek island life.
