Moutsatsos has been dancing at the annual festival for decades.

Now a student at Queen's University‚Äč in Kingston, Moutsatsos is studying classics.

This summer, her course work gave her a chance to connect further with her Greek Heritage. As part of her studies, she spent the month of June in Greece working on an archaeological dig of a market that was thousands of years old.

Mina Moutsatsos told Morning North host Markus Schwabe about her trip:

Doors open at 4 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free, but you do have to pay for the food.
