After conducting the popular Canton Summerfest for 30 years, the members of St. Haralambos Church concluded in 2013 that it was time for a new celebration—a festival designed for a new generation of church members, friends and neighbors. Choosing to focus on the heritage, traditions, and delicious food of its proud culture, the Church created a brand-new event in 2014: The Canton GreekFest. Since then the annual Canton GreekFest provides a wonderful display of Greek culture and food offerings for all of Northeast Ohio, and beyond to enjoy!DINING
