About the Beneficiary:
St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church

On December 18, 1926, St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church drew its first breath in a brownstone two-story building located on the southwest corner of Winthrop and Hollywood in the city of Chicago. On November 13, 1953, the parish purchased the corner lot on Hollywood and Sheridan Road, where the community resides to this day.


From its inception, St. Andrew’s has striven to be a spiritual home that preaches Christ to all people and served the people of Edgewater, Chicagoland, and beyond through outreach, service, fellowship and prayer

Yiasou! (Hello! and Welcome)

St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church has been part of the Edgewater community for the past 97 years.  We love our neighbors and the opportunity to share our Greek culture, heritage and delicious authentic food.  Being Greek means enjoying life to its fullest. Come experience the Ancient Greek concept of “filoxenia” and the famous hospitality of the Greek culture at our annual St. Andrew’s Edgewater Greek Fest held on July 8th and 9th.  We are looking forward to sharing our unique culture with you!


Our popular annual cultural celebration will be held on the grounds of St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church located at 5649 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago.  There, we will serve up authentic delicious food, entertain you with great music, Greek dancing and so much more.


So, come and join us and be Greek for the day!  All are welcome to The Edgewater Greek Fest.  Whether one is Greek or not, this fest promises that everyone will be proudly Hellenic for at least a day. Come, eat, dance and shout OPA!
