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.
