OPA!

The word "music" comes from the Ancient Greek word, "mousa", as in the nine Muses of Zeus, which included music and dance. We are home to award winning dance groups and musicians, and they are here to provide live entertainment during the entire weekend of the festival. Take a seat to enjoy the show, or try to learn a dance or two during one of our free dance lessons. Opa!

Mythos Band has played at various Greek festivals all over the country. From Sacramento, California, to Anchorage, Alaska, they really know how to get the party started! A lead singer with an incredible voice, a skillfully played Bouzouki, drums, guitar, and the occasional keytar make for an exciting festival experience!

Our local dance groups practice throughout the year to perfect the steps of their performances. Most have been learning Greek dancing since early childhood, as seen in our tiniest of dancers. They participate every year in a national Greek Folk Dance competition, and consistently are awarded top marks. Everything from wedding dances, to war dances, and even modern dancing that is just for fun is learned and performed during the festival. They dance in handmade costumes which are all unique to the various regions of Greece as well. Every stitch has a purpose, ever step has meaning, and every beat of the drum echoes in our hearts. Opa, paidia!
