On Sunday, January 25, while people in Greece will be voting to elect a new government, the Greek community of Montreal will gather for the “RBC Taste & Tradition” event that has been scheduled to take place from 12pm until 8pm at Chateau Royal.
More than 35 Greek organizations based in Montreal will present dishes, specialties and desserts from regions across Greece. Furthermore, several clubs and organizations will present Greek dance routines, dressed in traditional clothing from the respective Greek regions.
Artists such as Nicos Anastasiou, accompanied by musicians George Georgopoulos and Louis Kanaras, Artemis & Co., Petros Plarinos, Andreas Petropoulos and “Mythos” with Greek-Canadian singer Maro Litra, have volunteered to perform during the event.
All proceeds will go towards the Hellenic Community of Greater Montreal schools. “Repeated funding cuts to education have created the necessity to finance essential expenses previously covered by government grants. As a community, we recognized the need to help and thus created ‘Taste and Tradition,’ a fundraising event that showcases cuisine and music from various regions of Greece,” noted the organizing committee.
