Event season kicks off at Evergreen Village Square

San Jose, CA - Another season of fun events at Evergreen Village Square will be kicked off at the end of April with the annual EPIC Festival. The event brings together the various cultures of the Evergreen community to celebrate and appreciate the cultural diversity of the area.

Saturday April 30 will be the annual EPIC Festival.  EPIC stands for Earth, People, International, Culture, and was started by Vice-Mayor Rose Herrera nearly a decade ago to showcase the rich cultural diversity of the Evergreen area.  The Vice Mayor will be there to address the crowd and get the festivities started.  Emceed by the famous Lori and RJ of Cotton Candy Express, the event will again feature local dancing and singing groups both young and old.  Many different cultures and traditions are represented at the EPIC Festival, often wearing beautiful and colorful costumes.  The event coincides with the weekly Off the Grid Food Trucks, allowing festival goers to enjoy a wide variety of food, adding to the international flavor of this event.

The popular Friday Night Music, Art and Wine events will take place June 24, July 22 and August 5. A free family-friendly movie will be shown after dark at all three events.  There is always something going on at Evergreen Village Square!  Stay up to date with what is happening at the Square on the Evergreen Village Square Facebook page, or visit for a complete detailed list of events at the Square.

Evergreen Village Square Music Series

I think Evergreen Village is one of South San Jose's hidden gems. It's like a little oasis in the middle of the most suburban part of San Jose that resembles a mini Downtown wrapped around a beautiful fountain and park. At one point they were even planning a small movie theater and a restaurant on the lake, but unfortunately that never came to fruition.

If you've never been there before, the music series below is a great reason to come and enjoy the village. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will one day build out the rest of the site and have even more community-centric events like these. 


This year’s free Evergreen Village Square Music Series kicks off Friday June 8th with the amazing California Cowboys. There will be a total of six free outdoor concerts taking place at the beautiful Evergreen Village Square in San Jose. Enjoy the music every other Friday throughout the summer, from 6:00pm to 8:00, followed by a family-friendly movie.

Here is a list of the great bands coming to Evergreen Village Square:

June 8th- The California Cowboys (country music at its best!)
June 22nd- Macy Blackman and the Mighty Fines (Rock the house with classic New Orleans R&B)
July 6th- The Fabulous Cruisetones (Classic oldies from the fifties to the eighties)
July 20th- Alvon Johnson (Award-winning blues and R&B)
August 10th- The Hum (Rock ‘n Roll and Blues)
August 24th- The Road Dogs (Classic Rock)

Evergreen Village Square is located on Ruby Avenue, off Aborn Road East, in San Jose. Sponsored by Involved Evergreen.

Photos of Evergreen Village EPIC Festival

The Evergreen Village EPIC Festival last weekend was vibrant and lively. The crowd was bustling and kids were playing everywhere. It was a great day for some photos.

Lori and RJ hosted the event. You need to be a bit young to remember them. They use to host FOX Kids and the weekday cartoon lineup. What a flash back. I kind of miss watching cartoons.

The balloon artist was pretty cool. He was making neat multicolored multiballon animals and flowers. The T-Rex was pretty cool.

There were also various dances and some martial arts demos. Unfortunately, the stage was really hot due to the sun and so some of barefoot dances had to be done on the grass. But I think it turned out nicer dancing out on the green grass.

It was a great time. Also meet with Steve Natale from the Examiner who was doing some photos as well for the Evergreen Village site. Had a nice time chatting about photography gear and some classic cars.

The Evergreen Village will also be holding summer music and movie nights in the coming weeks. So, if you’re in the area, drop by and check it out.
