The annual Macedonian Glendi of Oakleigh, Australia, which will take place on Sunday, November 16, will signal the close of this year’s Dimitria celebrations, an event organized by the Pan-Macedonian Association of Melbourne.
Thousands of Greek Diaspora members will arrive in Oakleigh in order to get a taste of their faraway motherland. As any other Greek glendi, the event will include food, dance and music, showcasing Greek-Macedonian cultural heritage.
Pan-Macedonian Union President Dimitrios Dolis is expected to attend and speak at the event, along with Consul General for Greece in Melbourne Christina Simantirakis and Monash Mayor Geoff Lake.
People from across Australia are welcome to attend the event, where they will be able to participate in Greek food cooking classes and have the chance to taste some of Greece’s tastiest dishes.
