Giving Back


GreekFest is looking forward to continuing the tradition of giving back to the broader community.

Through the years, our GREEKFEST has contributed to more than a dozen organizations, charities and causes that serve children, families and communities across Vancouver Island, British Columbia and the broader global community.

This year’s Festival is supporting: the Hot Lunch Program in partnership with the Saanich Firefighters. The Hot Lunch Program provides prepared, nutritious meals for school children in Victoria.

Mark your calendars, as AUGUST 26, is a day dedicated to the Seniors – with a portion of all GREEKFEST proceeds collected on this day donated to this worthy cause.

Through the years, the Victoria and Vancouver Island Greek Community Society has contributed to numerous community events, charities and causes. These include:


  • Canada Cup games – International Diving Competition held at SCP
