Tucson Greek Festival is canceled but you can still order the food

It’s a fall tradition that’s been delivering good times to Tucson for 45 years, but the current pandemic has forced the event to change its plans.

The Tucson Greek Festival is canceled but the delicious bites are still available for pickup between 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Friday, September 25 – Sunday, September 27.
