Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Christian Church of Cheyenne, Wyoming, welcomes you and thanks you for attending our 31th Annual Greek Festival. We hope you enjoy all that we have to offer.
What started as a modest bazaar at the Greek Orthodox Church has become a cultural staple in Cheyenne. The Greek Festival will return to Cheyenne Friday and Saturday, once again bringing the vibrant Greek culture to life at the Frontier Park Exhibition Hall. The festival has been at its current location for 31 years but was originally formed as a fundraising bazaar and luncheon for the church. The money raised from the event still benefits Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church and other local charities in the community.

*****Laramie County Toys for Tots campaign is run from October through December holding required family registration, numerous fundraising events and collection of toys throughout Laramie County to provide hope to economically disadvantaged children and their families at Christmas We believe that “Every Child Deserves a Little Christmas”. Our county is unique as we are fortunate to have a community which allows our parents to shop in a warehouse and pick out the toys for their children and this is what we will utilize the tables for years to come.
The number of families varies from year to year however this past year we provided over 15,000 toys to 1310 children helping 340 families here in Laramie County. All funds raised and toys collected remain in Laramie County.
