A two-day bonanza of Mediterranean food and culture by Darling Harbour's foreshore

A weekend's not quite enough time to hop over to Santorini. Fortunately, there is another way to get a truly authentic Mediterranean experience, and you don't even need to leave the city.

The Greek Festival of Sydney is now in its 38th year and it's going to be a two-day bonanza of crisp honeyed loukoumades, flaky spanakopita and all-round big, fat, Greek revelry.

The free festivities begin on Saturday February 29, with market stalls and a stellar line-up of food on offer until Sunday evening. You can also expect some top-quality live entertainment, with Greek songstress Giota Negka, who has dominated the entehno and contemporary laiko scene in recent years, headlining the program.

Head to Darling Harbour from 3pm on February 29, where you can glug some ouzo, smash a few plates and maybe even rub shoulders with some Greek celebs by the harbour waters. Opa!
