About the festival
Glendi is an annual festival that celebrates all things Hellenic.
Glendi’s origins date back to 1978. It was originally established as a fundraising event between the Lions Club of Adelaide Hellenic and West Torrens Football Club. It has grown in its 35 plus year history, developing into an acclaimed multicultural festival. It is arguably one of the original ‘food and wine’ festivals in South Australia.
Glendi continues to be the major project of Lions Club of Adelaide Hellenic. The Festival celebrates the contribution Hellenic migration has made to South Australia and the opportunities South Australia has provided migrants and their families. Glendi’s objective is to deliver a weekend of family fun; combining food, entertainment, art, culture and education for all the community to enjoy. In doing so, its aim is to raise funds and distribute back into the community.
After a successful festival last year, Glendi returns in 2016 on the weekend of November 26 and 27 at Bonython Park.
