For more than 40 years, St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Piscataway has hosted an annual festival that celebrates Greek culture. It's the longest running Greek festival in the state, they say, and there's music, traditional folk dancing, church tours, and food, of course.

This year's festival will take place May 14 to 17, and thousands of people are expected to attend.

"We have much pride in our Greek heritage and look forward to coming together each year to share it with our visitors and patrons," festival chairman George Athanasopoulos said in a news release. "We prepare in advance so that our patrons have the best experience possible. There is a reason we are the best Greek festival in New Jersey."

The festival will take place from 4 to 10 p.m. May 14, 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. May 15, 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. May 16 and noon to 8 p.m. May 17. There will be an outdoor tavern, take-out booth, bakery and gift shops, and free parking and shuttle service will be available at the church and at nearby Rutgers Stadium.
Admission is $2, but the fee is waived between 4 and 10 p.m. May 14 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 15. Children 2 and younger are admitted free.

Take-out orders can be placed by emailing Greek.Festival@comcast.net.

St. George Greek Orthodox Church is at 1101 River Road in Piscataway. For more information, call 732-463-1642.
