They start at 6:00 pm on Friday, July 29 and 11:00 am on Saturday, July 30, and are every hour on the hour (The last tour on Friday begins at 8:00pm. The last tour on Saturday begins at 7:00 pm.).

Our Church Tours will share the basics about St. George’s unique architecture and its symbolism, an introduction to Orthodox Christianity, and allow time for your questions. We are looking forward to welcoming our neighbors inside our church home!

Food

Dance

The Greek Dancers of Minnesota is a Greek folk dance troupe that strives to promote Hellenic culture and history through dance performances. The group uses authentic Greek costumes from different regions of Greece and Cyprus. They perform powerful and energetic traditional dances of celebration, courtship, and showmanship. The group is composed of men and women of all age groups, and they not only perform traditional Greek dances but instruct and teach festival guests how to Greek dance.
