Celebrating the Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution
in Western Pennsylvania:

A synaxis of friends

To remember where we started from,
to realize where we stand,
and to decide where we want to go




The working group consisting of members of the American Hellenic Foundation of Western PA, the Greek, French, English, Russian Nationality Room Committees, and the European Art Center of Greece, are very happy to announce the events that are now formally scheduled in the month of March 2021 to celebrate this once in a lifetime event in our area.

All the events are “virtual” (on this Website, inside Youtube, or live on ZOOM) and open to the public.

Over the coming weeks, we will provide additional menu selections in this Website for the central landing page inside which these events can be accessed on their scheduled day and time. Furthermore, each of the events listed below, will be clickable - sending our friends to the event-specific landing page.
