In addition to the 57 stalls that lined Lonsdale Street, the Chobani Greek Kitchen, Neos Kosmos Cultural Plateia and Della Rosa Kids Space offered plenty of entertainment for Glendi goers. The Chobani Greek Kitchen hosted cooking demonstrations by several much-loved local chefs and cooks including Vicki Peppos and Mary Valle from the Sweet Greek Cooking School and Susie Rerakis, Katina Rerakis and Eleni Gerasimou from Philhellene Provincial Cuisine.

The Della Rosa Kids space provided many proud moments for parents. watching their children perform in traditional Greek costumes. Many learned how to Greek dance or relaxed with some Greek storytelling. Half way down the street in the Neos Kosmos Cultural Plateia, a number of cultural organisations demonstrated traditions from a number of regions, through dancing, music and exhibitions.
