A touch of the Mediterranean is coming to the Hunter in May with a new festival on the entertainment calendar.
Hope Estate has partnered with the creators of the popular Greek Festival of Sydney Darling Harbour to host an authentic celebration of Greek culture, music, food, and drink to Hope Estate.
The full day of entertainment will include national dancing troupes, Greek bands plus, direct from Greece, the amazing Dimitris Basis, set to be the highlight.
Patrons can enjoy an Ouzo tasting and wine tasting included in every adult General Admission ticket, all set to the backdrop of Hope Estate's vineyards.
Sweet honeyed loukoumades, mouth-watering souvlaki, creamy feta, sublime olives, juicy Yeeros, savoury spanakopita, and rich Greek coffee will start to flavour the food celebration.
Food vendors from the Darling Harbour Greek Festival of Sydney, including event sponsors Defi II and Big Fat Greek, will be attending to offer a wide range of lunch plates to enjoy.
The day will also feature demonstrations, a kids zone, boutique markets, and a range of Hope Brewery beers.
Greek Fest in the Hunter presented by Delphi Bank will be on Saturday, May 22. Tickets are now on sale.
