St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church Capitol Hill
March 10, 5 pm 21+
If you’ve ever been to the legendary Greek Festival at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Montlake, then you already know this house of worship isn’t afraid to get wild and get down on some good homemade food. But did you know that St. Demetrios also hosts the annual Balkan Night Northwest? Along with an evening-long dance party set to the unmistakable, wildly emotional music of the region, filled with the sounds of accordions and zournas, there will be appearances by Kukeri, costumed men wearing animal pelts, masks, and bells. As if that weren’t enough, sustenance will come in the form of dishes like Croatian čevapčići and ajvar (grilled sausages served with a spread made from roasted red peppers), all made by members of the community.
