Tweet Allow me to let you in on why going to a cultural festival is worth the trip. For starters its a festival about a nationality that you think you know something about, but don't.

Dallas, time to get your Greek on. The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church presents the Greek Food Festival for the 58th year in a row. For those unfamiliar, the Greek Food Fest is about more than just food. Much more. It's a celebration of all things Greek. Think dancing, art, a church tour and multiple cooking demonstrations. Thanks to the Dallas Morning News, we learned this year that the growing festival started humbly as a bake sale and how attracts over 14,000 people each year.
It's September, and just when you thought festival season was over, here are 12 more awesome ones.

The third annual Index Fest is finally upon us, and we’re really (really, truly) hoping that it won’t be 100 degrees at the end of September. That means cooler nights to enjoy the ninety-five bands that are hitting the stage in just three awesome-filled days.
Mercedes-Benz Evolution Tour Dallas Event with Mayer Hawthorne happens tonight, Thursday, September 4th at Southside Ballroom, starting at 8:00pm. Enter this easy contest for tickets. Did we mention it's open bar?
This beer-tastic event started around 6 p.m. and ended around 10 p.m. Unlike other events, Labor of Love seemed more fun-loving and less competitive overall. Maybe it was the low cost of entry ($30), and unlimited beer samples, but patrons seemed to be more gleeful because they got their money’s worth.
Tweet The sidewalk outside of a beautiful, modern house off Lovers Lane gained traffic as it grew closer and closer to 4:30 PM on Saturday. “Someone havin’ a party?” a neighbor asked me. “You could say that…” I replied. As I gave my name to the lady with the clipboard at the door, she crossed [...]
