Come Be Greek For a Day!
June 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 2018!
Greek-Americans in San Jose take pride in sharing our culture and heritage with our local community. We welcome everyone, of all ages and all walks of life to come and be Greek for a day. Enjoy food, drink, and friendship; it's all part of philoxenia. We don't welcome you with only our hearts, we welcome you with our spirit, as well.
Celebrating our 47th Year in 2018!
No word in English translates to philoxenia directly. You can say it's the welcoming of strangers or guests, but to the people from Greece it is something that powers our souls. We love cooking for old friends and new friends because we want them to feel like family. We dance the night away to songs about love and loss because we want to celebrate the good times and remember the past, but not dwell in it. We hold hands, we break bread, we say "to our health" and remind the world that any day can be a good day when you're surrounded by good people.
