Greece may not be faring too well on the economic front, but that's not stopping the annual Oakland Greek Festival, now in its 41st year. Celebrating the music, food, and long cultural history of the small nation of ten million, the festival will feature live music, dance performances and lessons, cooking demonstrations, and all the souvlaki, spanakopita, and moussaka you can stomach. The festival takes place on Friday through Sunday, May 17-19, at Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension (4700 Lincoln Ave., Oakland). Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; $6 for adults, free for children twelve and under. OaklandGreekFestival.com
