This weekend is the St. Nicholas Greek Festival held at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on the corner of Forest Park and Kingshighway. While you do have to pay for your food and any items from the market, the entertainment and tours are FREE and there is no other admission cost! You can park for free in the BJC parking garage and walk over to the church.
The festival runs Saturday and Sunday, 11am-9pm, and Monday 11am-8pm.
Check out the amazing Greek food that will be available. It's making me hungry. :)
***A note about the Japanese Festival this weekend at Missouri Botanical Garden: I called and confirmed with MOBOT that everyone will be charged admission this Saturday, so don't head to the Garden this Saturday hoping for free admission for St Louis City and County residents. The Japanese Festival has a lot going on, so you may find it worth the admission price. There are also many FREE children's activities in addition to the other events.
