44th Annual Greek Festival At St. John's In Tenafly

Greek Festival
Known for its specialty food and gift items as well as rides, St. John The Theologian Church on East Clinton Avenue, Tenafly started its 4 day festival on May 29th. Father Panagiotis (Peter) Lekkas braved an illness recovery to visit the function and to bless it. On hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony were Tenafly Mayor Peter Ruskin and Englewood Cliffs Mayor Joseph C. Parisi Jr. They too had other pressing obligations, but were present for this gala event.

Although Mayor Rustin lives across the street, he could not wait for the food to be prepared. He promised to stop back later on. Mayor Parisi was seen not only at the food counter, but also at the cake counter where there were many sweets to be selected.  Available at the feast were: Grilled Octopus, Lamb Shank, Souvlaki, Gyros, Greek Fries, Grek Sausage, Moussaka, Pastitsio, Mezedakia, Greek Salad, Tyropita, Spanakopita and Keftedes, Orzo, Dolmades and Taramosalata among many other Greek dishes.  There are also daily specials.


The rides, supplied by Reithoffer Shows, were active right from the start. A mixture of kiddy and adult rides are presented. Getting there early will provide you with onsite parking. The overflow crowd has a distance to go. East Clinton Avenue is a well traversed right of way!
