To take advantage of the best deals, one of the best times to travel to Greece is during September-October. At this time of year, all the crowds from summer are gone, there are lots of off-season discounts to be had, and it's not that hot anymore. Thanksgiving or other seasonal holidays around this time would be well-spent here.
Cultural events for Greek locals also really flourish around the late fall/early winter season in Greece, so there is much to see. For example, Thessaloniki's Dimitria Festival runs through early October. This festival boasts a large selection of events from musicals to shadow theater and other cultural offerings.
