MILWAUKEE — Even though Greek Fest is canceled, we're still celebrating Greek culture in Milwaukee.

The festival is one of the largest fundraisers for the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.

Organizers say the 55th Annual Greek Fest will return to the State Fair Grounds in 2021. Greek Fest Chairman, Michael Stavropoulos says planning has already begun.
