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!


Ah, the food! Guests will be able to enjoy a vari­ety of deli­cious Greek dish­es and pas­tries through­out the week­end. Our indoor din­ing, locat­ed inside the Alex D. Kras­sas Cen­ter, will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. dai­ly and will fea­ture every­thing from gyros, soups and pastit­so to Greek chick­en and roast lamb.
