Athens Grease Festival

Athens Grease Festival

Oct 17th 202011 a.m.-10 p.m

Fried foods are Southerners' Achilles’ heel. Our kitchens are like art studios where recipes are perfected and new delights are born. We especially love to batter and fry standard fare like okra and fish, but we don't mind expanding the technique to Twinkies and Snicker bars. In Athens, we have embraced our love of fried foods and the Greek origin of our name by hosting the Athens Grease Festival in downtown Athens. Eating healthy is important, but we have set aside this time for our taste buds to enjoy the culinary creations we love to batter, dip and fry. Grab a bed sheet, create your own toga and bring your taste buds to the city that knows how to celebrate being a classic, living Southern and having character. A $1 discount off the admission price will be given for toga wearers. Spirit of Athens, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Athens, is organizing the event. Proceeds from the event will benefit SOA and improvement projects downtown.
