NJ Greek Fest WeatherFoxNY is Forecasting
Great Weather
June 2, 2013  Fox 5's Nick Gregory and Mike Woods are forecasting perfect weather for the NJ Greek Fest today. 

With mostly sunny skies, a cool breeze, lower humidity and only a chance of an issolated rain shower before the festival closes at 7pm.  Should an issolated shower or thunderstorm pop up during the festival, it will be the prefect opportunity to visit our air conditioned indoor "Agora" (Greek Marketplace) or take a Church Tour until it passes.  After the festival closes, scattered thunderstorms should help to clean-up the Festival  grounds this evening.

The 2012 NJ Greek FestChuck on the Grill
Has Been Extended to Sunday!
March 24, 2012  Westfield, NJ - Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church's annual festival "NJ Greek Fest" which for the last two years has been held on the weekend after the Memorial Day weekend will continue in that tradition again this year.  Although the festival was first scheduled to be held only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sunday has now been added.

Since Sunday June 3rd is the day the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates Pentecost, the highest ranking Great Feast of the Lord second only to Easter, it was originally thought that the Church should not ask volunteers to work on this very holy day.  However after much deliberation it was decided that an exception would be made this year.  In the future, if Penecost falls on the Sunday after Memorial Day, the Festival will be moved to another date.

This year's festival will be on Thursday May 31, Friday June 1st, Saturday June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd.  On Thursday the Festival will be open from 5-10pm, on Friday and Saturday the Festival will be from Noon - 11pm, and on Sunday the Festival will begin after Church Services at noon and conclude at 5 pm.
