The festival is loaded with fun for the whole family. For children, we have a large playland complete with rides, activities and cotton candy. Your older children will love the cultural displays and opportunity to interact with the Spartan warriors.

Playland Activities

Children will enjoy their adventure at the popular Playland, with the atmosphere of a Fair complete with face painting, wax hands, caricatures, games and more.

Live Reenactments

Evzone – The Yiasou Festival Evzones of Holy Trinity – Come marvel in the reenactment of the changing of the guards by the men of Charlotte’s Greek community. This inaugural group of Evzones is committed to preserving and celebrating the tradition of the presidential guards, an elite unit of the Greek army which guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in front of the Hellenic Parliament building, and the Presidential Mansion in Athens, Greece. The costumes of Holy Trinity’s Evzones are a replica of the uniforms worn by the Evzones in Greece. The uniform consists of the kilt-like foustanella, which has 400 pleats to represent 400 years of Turkish occupation and red leather clogs, which weigh over seven pounds. Each uniform is specially made in 80 days by trained craftsmen and is considered to be one of the most unique ceremonial military attire in the world.
