If you’re anything like us, you were probably devastated when Paniyiri was cancelled last year due to COVID-19. Missing our annual opportunity to eat our body weight in hot, golden honey puffs? It was almost the worst news of lockdown (although it did score us this baklava recipe).
Well this year, while the festival will be looking a little different to usual, rest assured you will be able to get your honey puff fix. Instead of taking over Musgrave Park, Paniyiri will be hitting The Greek Club in West End on the weekend of 22 and 23 May, putting on a program of real, virtual and live streamed experiences. The best part? We hear there’s going to be a honey puff pop-up involved. Our bodies are ready.
Over the course of the weekend, there will be cooking demonstrations, Greek dancing performances, music sets, fashion parades and talks, all of them either live or live and live streamed. All the live events will be ticketed, but don’t worry, there’ll be a few freebies for those short on funds. And for those just in it for the food (we get it), Nostimo Restaurant at The Greek Club will be celebrating for a whole month, with delicious lunch and dinner specials to sample.
You can find out more and jump on those tickets when they go on sale here.
When: Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 May
Where: The Greek Club, West End
