A Celebration of Hellenic Heritage & Dance

On behalf of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, we are very excited to announce that PARATHOSI 2018 will be held on Saturday, January 27th, 2018.  This will be more than just a celebration of Hellenic Heritage & Dance. It will be an opportunity for all the Youth and Young Adults of the Direct Archdiocesan District to come together to celebrate our faith, culture, and heritage in a spirit of Orthodox fellowship.


PARATHOSI 2018 will be a one-day event beginning on Saturday morning, January 27th at Queens College.  We will be having all the performances during the course of the day.  Everyone is welcome to cheer on and support our performers from throughout the district. 


Once the performances conclude, we will be having our Awards Glendi in the evening at Terrace on the Park in Queens, NY.  There will be a full band and dinner at the event. We welcome participants of the event, as well as their families and friends.  Please join us for a wonderful evening celebrating our heritage with an opportunity to dance to music from many regions of Greece.


Our entire executive committee is extremely excited for this years event.  Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns at
