Experience Taste of Greece at Canada’s Wonderland
It was around 1986 or 1987 when my parents took my sisters and I to Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan, ON. My aunt who lived in Toronto at the time came with us. Because it was so long ago, I only remember bits and pieces of our visit. However, what I’ll never forget is how I felt that day especially when I first walked into the park and discovered how big it was. I was in awe and couldn’t believe something so wonderful even existed. I’d even say that it was one of the best days of my childhood. The experience was unforgettable. My excitement was palpable. So many happy memories were made that day.
I’ve visited many times since that day. I went with a group of friends in my late teen years. We also took our daughters there on a family vacation. As a child and teen, I went for the thrills. I loved the roller coasters. I’m in my late 30’s now and though I still love the rides, I’m also looking at some of the other perks a visit to Canada’s Wonderland offers. Like the food!
Taste of Greece
The foodie in me is salivating over Canada’s Wonderland bringing a Taste of Greece this year to Action Zone from noon to 10 pm on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24. Hello kebobs, feta cheese and more yummy classic Greek dishes. The food is from Catering by Nikos, an authentic Greek catering company. Check out the delicious menu!
- Tiropites and Spanakopita
- Pita bread with four traditional Greek dips
- Greek Salad
- Grilled Vegetables
- Chicken or Pork Souvlaki
- Chicken Gyro
- Greek Yoghurt
Not only do we have to look forward to the myriad of Greek food, but we can also immerse ourselves in Greek culture with music and street entertainment. Ola Band will provide live music at 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm both days. They are an authentic Greek band who play both traditional and modern music from various regions of Greece.
Levendia X Hellenic Folklore Association, a live dance troupe, will be performing on Saturday. You won’t want to miss it.
Another live dance troupe, the Dance Groups of the Greek Community of Toronto will be performing on Sunday. They have 175 dancers from ages 5 to 20 years old. Note that only the dancers ages 14 to 20 will be performing.
The best part is that entrance is FREE with Park admission. After you’ve had your fill of the roller coasters and other thrilling rides, you can head over to Action Zone and experience the classic tastes of the Mediterranean. Delicious!
Keep an eye on this Special Events page because there are more delicious food events to come. How does a Taste of Italy, a Food Truck Festival and Octoberfest sound to you? They’ll be coming up later on this year at Canada’s Wonderland. Can’t wait!
