The Greekfest will happen in Jackson, May 19th through Sunday May 21st on the grounds of St. John the Theologian Greek Orthodox Church, and this year they’re welcoming former Bachelor contestant Corinne Olympios.

One of The Bachelor’s most entertaining contestants from the most recent season, Corinne Olympios will be appearing in the Fuse.Cloud VIP tent on Saturday, May 20. Olympios, who happens to be Greek, will participate in a question and answer session with VIP guests. Included will be a complimentary gyro lunch and drinks provided by Southern Beverage Company.

You can purchase tickets for the VIP tent on the website, www.greekfestjackson.org.

Greekfest will last all weekend and gives the opportunity for the Jackson Greek community a chance to share their heritage, culture and faith with others from around the metro area and state of Mississippi.

The event will highlight food vendors with traditional Greek food like gyros and pastries. Visitors can also check out their handmade goods from local vendors with live Greek music, youth folk dancing and an atmosphere of a typical Greek taverna.
