Travel Back in Time with the Help of the Athens Grease Festival

Head to Athens for a weekend celebration of all things fried at the Athens Grease Festival! Combining the Greek roots of the city’s name with the delicious local culinary traditions, this festival has something for everyone to enjoy.

Dine on the fried cuisine and take part in all the quirky activities plans for the day, including Dub's burger eating contest, a turkey toss, and a toga contest that invites you and your pets to participate! There’s plenty of live music and performances throughout the event, and you won’t want to miss the inaugural 5k Toga Run, a festival staple that is just as fun to watch as it is to run!

It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But Presbyterian Towers, the premier apartments in Decatur, Alabama, believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
