SAN JOSE, CA - JUNE 4, 2012 --- On Sunday, June 17, History Park in San Jose will serve as the background for the tenth anniversary of the Hellenic Heritage Museum with a Greek music and wine festival. Authentic Greek food, traditional pastries, imported wines and shopping at the specialty vendor booths will contribute to the festival atmosphere, 11 AM to 8 PM.
Honorary Chair of the event, and San Jose City Councilmember, Pete Constant will host the event, and will conduct the 4 PM program honoring the tenth anniversary. Also a special memorial tribute will be paid to late Greek musicians who shared their musical talents with the world and made “Zorba the Greek” a household song.
Since Greek music will be the focus of the festival, Mythos Greek Band will play popular Greek music, along with other young, emerging musicians playing throughout the day.
The best local Greek restaurants, including Dio Deka of Los Gatos, will provide typical Greek food for purchase. A favorite of the Greek dining tradition, pastries, will also be available.
The festival will take place on Father’s Day, so instead of a backyard barbeque, bring Dad to a Greek-style celebration. Treat him to a Gift Certificate: the $45 includes admission, Greek food, wine, dessert, and a special t-shirt that says “Best Father”, in Greek. Gift Certificates will be pre-sold, and can be purchased by calling (408) 247-4685.
History Park is located at 1650 Senter Road, between Phelan and Keyes, San Jose, CA 95112. Please enter through the back gate located on Phelan. There is ample parking in the paid lot at the end of the street. Admission to this Greek Anniversary Celebration is $5.
