Did you know the word "kefi" expresses someone's pleasure and satisfaction with life. We wish you "kefi". Let our dancers take you on a musical journey through Greece, featuring dances from both the mainland and the islands. Enjoy the artistry and rhythm of our PANEGYRI Greek Festival Folk Dancers as they perform in full traditional dress.
When our dancers are not performing, feel free to get up, let the bouzouki music overtake you and try out some Greek dances. No need to worry if you're unsure of some of the Greek dance steps, our dancers will be more than happy to help you learn. Join them for free "Learn to Dance Greek" lessons.
There's no doubt about it. Cincinnati's annual PANEGYRI Greek Festival has something for everyone to enjoy. So, come join us and give us the opportunity to share our heritage with you. Hope to see you there!
