Paniyiri Greek Festival

May 2, 2018

Sophie Dillman, who plays the feisty Ziggy Astoni on Home & Away, and 25-year-old Brisbane boy Patrick O’Connor, who plays bad-boy Dean Thompson, will be at Paniyiri Greek Festival.

Both are making their Paniyiri Festival debut and they will be certainly put to the test, taking part in Greek cooking and coffee-making, grape stomping, plate smashing, and the highly anticipated Greek Dancing with the Stars, among other hilarious Hellenic pursuits!

Paniyiri 2018 event highlights include the return of The Plateia (authentic Greek Village), the Hellenic Dancers Showcase Program, the acclaimed Cooking Program starring the flavours and faces of Greece and a line-up of authors, chefs, speakers and home cooks; as well as the dancers, singers, stars and the array of celebrities that will make the third weekend in May taste, sound and feel extraordinary.

Tickets are available at the gate and are also available for purchase online from
