The Glendi was first formed and took place for the first time in 1978. Back then the Glendi took place in the Greek stronghold area of Torrensville at the Thebarton Oval. 2004 is going to be the 27th anniversary of Australia's largest sole Greek Festival. The Glendi will once again be bigger and better than ever before with great food, entertainment, and stalls hosting unique products

About the GLENDI

2005 will be 28th year of Adelaide's Glendi Festival.

Festival visitors will be entertained by authentic Greek dances demonstrated in traditional attires, throughout the two-day event. Many regions of Greece will have their own 'taverna' with a wide variety of traditional dishes to enjoy. From Pita to traditional souvlakia, Yiros to everyone's favourite lamb on the spit, quail to oven-roasted goat, seafood including octopus and calamari, pork ribs & corn on the cob, and let's not forget 'Loukanika', Greece's infamous hot sausage and the sweetest delicacies of the Aegean.

An extensive program of art and performance including artworks from several Greek visual artists will be featured in the Cultural Marquee, along with organisations that promote Hellenic culture in its many diverse forms.

The schools program will have over 35 different public primary, secondary and private colleges participating. The Festival's theme in 2005 is still to be announced, however the displays to be prepared by primary and secondary Students will be based on the Glendi theme, and as always will be on display in the School's marquee.
