Glenti 2019

This much-loved annual celebration of Greek culture has grown so big, one weekend simply can’t contain it.

This year, Glenti kicks off on Sat 1 June with a week of events in the lead up to the delicious Esplanade take-over.

Greek Community NT president Nick Poniris says demand from interstate visitors sparked the idea to hold events the week prior.

“Visitors come up early and often ask us if there’s anything happening during the week,” he says.

“It prompted the idea – why not make a week of Glenti? We started it last year but this year we’ve taken it to a whole new level.”

It all kicks off with Romiosini and Beyond, a concert celebrating the music of Mikis Theodorakis, followed by a week of films for the Greek Film Festival.

With all of this excitement going on, there’s also plenty happening behind closed doors… Locals start prepping the food for the main event well before the marquees are put up. All of the usual (delicious) suspects are on the menu with souvla, yiros, octopus, spanakopita, Greek sweets and cakes. Hungry yet?
