OKLAHOMA CITY -- Don't miss the upcoming Greek Festival set for October 22-24 at Saint George Greek Orthodox Church, 2101 NW 145th Street.

Festival visitors can taste home-style Greek food favorites, including a full dinner menu featuring a choice of a Greek-style roasted chicken or savory Greek meatballs in a rich tomato sauce served with rice pilaf; Greek salad; pastitsio: luscious layers of seasoned beef, noodles, and creamy béchamel sauce; green beans Yiahni; spanakopita: a deliciously flaky spinach and cheese pie; and pita bread.

The Festival bakery is always popular, offering homemade Greek sweets such as baklava, Greek butter cookies, shortbread, honey-dipped spice cookies, fruit preserve squares, and sweet holiday bread.

Stay for the entertaining music and dance that are an essential part of Greek culture, according to festival organizer Nick Pagonis.

California-based Mediterranean Soul will be performing live Greek music all weekend. Greek folk dancing groups of all ages will perform traditional dances and even offer visitors a chance to join in on some dances.

A portion of the Festival proceeds benefits the Randy Royse Research Fund at the Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in Children at the University Of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

A 5K run is set for Saturday morning.
