New Jersey Greek Festivals

Greek festivals in New Jersey are usually organized by either a Greek Orthodox church with a large following or a Greek community service organization with an interest in promoting their culture and providing knowledge and stories for future generations to benefit from.

They typically run for three to four days around a summer weekend and in addition to promoting the Greek culture, they raise money to support many worthwhile charitable causes.
