Assumption Greek Orthodox Church is host to the famous Greek Fest Plus each summer, and the well anticipated Baklava Plus Sale for the hoildays.

Greek Fest Plus

Our annual Church festival and fundraiser, and Madison’s oldest ethnic festival, Greek Fest Plus is a popular summer crowd draw. All attendees wait for the great Greek food and pastries offered by the hard working Church members. Everyone gets their exposure to our ethnic heritage and our Christian religion with taking a Church tour, listening to our Greek music, and Greek dancing in the street!  Additionally we have a children’s bouncy house, a Greek Coffee Kafeneon, raffle and souvenir shop. Make sure you mark it on your calendars, each July!
