Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The city of Youngstown will become a one-stop shop for food, the arts, live music and a cycling tour next week.

Organizers are getting ready for the Biggest Weekend Ever.

The collaboration of events begins with the Greek Festival at Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Thursday July 11 and lasts through Sunday.

The Summer Festival of the Arts at Youngstown State University's campus begins Saturday, July 13 and the Tour of Valley cycling marathon also takes off that morning at 9 a.m.

The Youngstown Jazz Fest on Sunday night in Central Square will be the grand finale of the weekend of family fun and entertainment.

All events will all be within walking distance.

"You can park right around campus and go up to campus for a few hours. The Summer Festival of the arts has tons of artists,. It's a very kid friendly event," says Lyndsey Hughes, Youngstown director of events and marketing.

Jazz Fest discount tickets will be sold at the arts festival for $17 each.

"When you're done over there, you can walk over here to St. Nick's church to get some really good food," Hughes says.

The Greek Festival menu will include traditional dishes like Pastitso and Moussaka, chicken dinners and Greek pastries.
