One of Australia's largest and longest-running cultural events, the Greek Festival of Sydney is a bit of an institution. It's taken over Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour, with dancing, loukoumades and ouzo every year for almost four decades  — and it shows little sign of slowing down.

This year, the festivities start Saturday, February 29, with market stalls, live music, dance and cultural performances, and all of the delicious Greek food and drinks your stomach can handle. Sip an iced cold kafe kai frappe, enjoy a souvlaki wrap, load up on sugary loukoumades, and unwind with a few Mythos beers and an ouzo or two.

The festivities continue on Sunday, with more food (and more ouzo) and a night performance from singer Giota Negka, who is performing in Australia for the first time.

The Greek Festival of Sydney will run from 3–10pm on Saturday and 10am–10pm on Sunday.
