For the Greek Community living in Australia, the Lonsdale Street Festival (formerly Antipodes Festival) is a must-attend event that celebrates Greece’s rich culture and food.
The festival brings together Greek Australians to share the best of Greece’s culture: think food, competitions and fun activities for the kids. Delicious food is part and parcel of Greek’s amazing culture, so it is little wonder that an integral part of the festival is the various food stalls that dot the streets.
