For a sneak peek of some of the available items you will be able to see and purchase ­­­­at the festival, click here.

While in Tarpon Springs, enjoy some of the unique culture, authentic Greek cuisine, and public art installations the area has to offer, along with views of the beautiful waterfront and historic sponge docks, which is still a working waterfront and home to some of the world’s finest sponges. The sponge industry helped build this engaging Greek community that is now a popular destination for thousands of visitors each year.

Organized by Tarpon Springs Merchants Association, the festival will run Saturday, September 24th, from 10 to 7 p.m., and Sunday, September 25th, from 10 to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
