St. Louis has a dizzying number of great festivals each year but this weekend is one of the best of the best–Greek Fest 2011 at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Town & Country.
If you’ve never been to this one, you’re missing the boat. The food alone is worth the trip.
Besides moussaka, dolmathes, pastitsio, gyros and luscious baklava, there’s a lot to draw you here. Check out the entire menu and don’t forget to pick up some amazing Greek pastries.
Billed as a chance to “experience a taste of Greece on this side of the Atlantic,” this festival runs from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday-Monday, May 27-30 at the church, 1755 Des Peres Road. That means four days to get your Greek on and dine on some of the best festival food anywhere. Admission is free.
The entertainment is non-stop. At 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and Monday in the Hellenic Center (parish hall), the Kyklos-Hellenic Dance Group performs traditional Greek folk dances in colorful, authentic costumes as they were performed in Greek villages many years ago.
And Saturday, Sunday and Monday the sounds of Greece fill the Taverna outside with traditional Greek music played by an authentic Greek band. (The really brave can dance along with the music.)
Tours of the church with Byzantine-style renderings hand painted on the ceiling and side walls are available at noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
In addition, every hour on the hour a Hellenic travelogue movie will be shown.
Top off your visit with shopping trip to “Agora,”a traditional Greek market offering an array of authentic Greek items.

Southwest Airlines just announced a “Click N Save” Sale with several destinations from St. Louis. The sale prices are a bit disappointing, though–one one (Kansas City, $79 one way) is less than $114 and many are more than that.
The sale is not listed on its website and apparently is only available when you sign up for its weekly email offers.
“Vincentennial,” St. Louis tribute to the centennial birthday of former local boy Vincent Price continues with a double feature tonight at Washington University‘s Brown Hall Auditorium.
Tonight it’s Champagne for Caesar at 7 p.m. and The Baron of Arizona at 9:15 p.m. Admission is free.
Washington University film and media lecturer Hunter Vaughan will introduce the films and and do a post-film discussion of Champagne for Caesar.
Here’s what Cinema St. Louis’s website says about Champagne For Caesar:
“In this delightful satire, Ronald Colman stars as human encyclopedia Beauregard Bottomley, who becomes a contestant on a TV quiz show sponsored by the Milady Soap Company. After winning the show’s top prize, he challenges the producers to let him go on, and Beauregard is soon accumulating cash. Vincent Price plays Milady’s distressed chief executive, Burnbridge Waters, who fears company bankruptcy and frantically devises strategies to trip up the know-it-all. Deftly using slow burns and double takes, Price proves absolutely hysterical, making it a pity that his obvious comic talents weren’t showcased more often. Art Linkletter plays the show’s dim host, Happy Hogan, and Warner Bros. cartoon talent Mel Blanc voices the Caesar of the title, an inebriated parrot. Celeste Holm co-stars in this rarely screened gem, which is presented in a dazzling 35mm print.”
And about The Baron of Arizona, it says:
“The second film written and directed by auteurist favorite Samuel Fuller (Pickup on South Street, The Naked Kiss, Shock Corridor), The Baron of Arizona is based on the true-life adventures of James Addison Reavis (1843-1914), one of the most ambitious swindlers of the 19th century. In the 1870s, ace conman Reavis (Vincent Price) spent years carefully forging documents and land grants intended to make him and his wife (Ellen Drew) the undisputed owners of the entire state of Arizona. A captivating, offbeat Western, “The Baron of Arizona” features impressive B&W cinematography by two-time Oscar® winner James Wong Howe, and Price’s role as a likeable schemer was one of his personal favorites. Praising the film on its 1950 release, the Los Angeles Times wrote: ‘Sam Fuller and star Vincent Price make the Baron a brilliantly resourceful, fascinating fellow, and his adventures absorbing.’”
“Vincentennial,” a week-long tribute to movie great Vincent Price, is sponsored by MICDS (Mary Institute Country Day School) and Cinema St. Louis.
A highlight of ”Vincentennial” will be an appearance by Victoria Price, Vincent Price’s daughter, at the Missouri History Museum at 7 p.m., Friday. Her talk, “The Vincent Price Legacy: Reflections From A Daughter,” is free and open to the public.
