Becoming a sponsor

St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral is the spiritual and cultural center of the Greek community of Worcester. It is nestled within 4 streets: Russell, Elm, Cedar and Merrick. This historic cathedral is home to one of Worcester’s most prominent and celebrated festivals.

Due to our longevity and popularity over the span of almost 50 years, the St. Spyridon Greek Festival has garnered a notable influence and reach in the local community; attracting 10,000 visitors over the course of a single weekend. The Greek Festival is one of our largest fundraisers and it supports all of our educational, cultural and spiritual programs and activities such as: our youth and senior programs, our Board of Education certified pre-school, our feeding programs that serve hundreds each month, our humanitarian efforts to build homes in international countries, food baskets for the poor and so much more.

Every festival year, we partner with businesses in this unique opportunity to showcase our filoxenia (hospitality) and share the Greek culture. Thank you for your consideration in sponsoring us and helping us to continue serving Worcester with the tastes and sights of Greece.
