The first Festival - then called a bazaar - was in in 1960, making 2021 the 60th year (accounting for the pandemic year without a Festival) for putting on this annual event. Always the second weekend of October, this year the Original Phoenix Greek Festival is October 8th, 9th, and 10th.
We at Holy Trinity Greek School deeply believe in the importance of learning and preserving the Greek Language and Culture. The students attending Greek School for eight months (September-May) learn, write, and read with special attention to Greek Culture. Throughout the year the students are exposed to Greek Culture in many ways: they discuss religious holidays and customs, learn history, cooking regional traditional dishes, mythology, and arts. Our school presents three cultural programs during the year, one in December to celebrate the Holidays, one in March to honor the Greek Independence Day, and the last by the end of May during graduation. All programs are greatly enjoyed by our students and give them the opportunity to show off their abilities in cooking, poetry, music, and dancing, for all family and friends. If you are not familiar with our Greek School here is a brief outline of our program:
PK/K: The students learn the sound system and basic vocabulary in a fun and a happy environment. Children as young as four years old can start Greek School.
Level 1: This Level makes the transition from a purely speaking class to the reading and writing format. The students learn the Greek Alphabet, reading, writing, vocabulary and phrases leading to conversation.
Level 2: The students are able to read sentences, write and spell and use basic conversation. Grammar is introduced.
Level 3: Longer texts are introduced. The students study vocabulary, spelling and conversation. Grammar is taught in detail. Geography, history, mythology is a very important part in all levels
