Popular Greek food fest to draw thousands

By Robert Frank

More than 2,000 foodies are expected to flock to this year’s Greek Taste and Tradition Fest at Chomedey’s Château Royal, Jan. 25.

“In one place, you will be able to sample distinctive regional dishes from 37 different Greek associations,” smiled Hellenic Community of Greater Montreal public relations and marketing director Paris Petrou.

“Each region has its own traditional food,” he told The Suburban. “You will be able to sample whatever dishes you want from the buffet.”

“Meantime, there will also be performances of traditional dances from each of those regions, as well as elementary school students from our Greek schools,” Petrou said in an interview. “There will also be appearances by ten well-known Montreal Greek mainstream artists as well as a disc jockey.”

Participants can arrive any time after doors open at 1 p.m., Sunday, and the event will continue until 8 p.m.

“We wanted to showcase to all Montrealers this year—not just to Greeks, so we were very pleased that Royal Bank of Canada agreed to be the event’s main sponsor this year,” Petrou added.

A number of VIP guests, including municipal politicians, are expected to be on hand. Tickets cost $25 per person and children aged 4-12 can dine for $10.
