EVENTS OF THE LADIES OF HESTIA
CHRISTMAS BAKE SALE
Every year on Christmas, the Hestia spends countless hours baking thousands of Greek pastries by hand which they sell at the annual bake sale.
This event is one of the most festive of our community which also features a lunch that includes a sampling of each sweet available for purchase!
The Saturday before Lent is known as “Apokries” in Greece and is celebrated as a "Carnival" there and around the world.
This event, now held for many years at our community in Edmonton, features a homemade Greek meal, live music and dance performances, and a costume parade for the kids. A highlight of the year, this unforgettable party seems to keep getting better each year!
