  • Oh, but the food at this festival is just one part of it.

All next weekend, you have the opportunity to go Greek without any of the weird fraternity nonsense that phrase typically entails. Rather, the 39th annual Tucson Greek Festival is returning for four days of Greek food, dance, drinks, music and more.

Although you can check out the full food menu for this year's fest online, you can expect classics like hummus, falafel, baklava, dolmades and more and you might even discover some new favorites. You can definitely look forward to saganaki ($5; pan-fried cheese with Greek brandy and lemon), Athenian baked chicken with lemon and oregano ($9) and roasted lamb shank with rice pilaf ($12), as well as Greek beer, ouzo, wine, coffee and brandy. The event will also feature live Greek music, the award-winning Panathenian Dancers and a Greek market.

The Tucson Greek Festival will take over St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church (1145 E. Ft. Lowell Road) on Thursday, Sept. 24 from 5 to 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 25 from 5 to 11 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 26 from 4 to 11 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 27 from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is $3 per day for adults of $6 for a four-day pass. Kids under 12 get in free. For more information and the full food menu, visit the event's website.
