About

The Shepherd’s Guild was chartered on September 30, 1999. The Guild organized The Anderson Greek Festival for 13 years (2006 to 2018), now named the Mini Greek-Mediterranean Festival. The new event name is based on the composition of our workforce and to promote a respect for diversity while fostering our Mediterranean-Greek cuisine.

A Mediterranean food event operated by The Shepherd’s Guild, a 501c3 nonprofit service organization of Eastern Orthodox. Hospitality is an important thing in the Mediterranean culture and in the South; therefore, we are delighted to present the 2021 “Mini” Greek-Mediterranean Festival, a community event for all. The mission of the event is φιλοξενία and service (stewardship).

Festival dates: October the 22nd, 23rd & 24th, 2021
