Mytilenian Brotherhood to bring back traditional celebration of ‘Sardella Day’


The Mytilenian Brotherhood of Sydney is set to bring back their annual ‘Sardella Day’ event on Sunday September 18 at the Mytilenian House in the Sydney suburb of Canterbury. 

‘Sardella Day’ is typically celebrated on the Greek island of Lesvos where sardines are fished from the gulfs of Gera and Kalloni. 

On the day, attendees will enjoy eating sardines cooked three ways – barbecued, fried and ‘Plaki in the Oven.’ 

Mezethakia will also be served alongside hero dishes like horta, beetroot, black eye beans and skordalia, which will be prepared by resident Chef, Aris Chatzigeorgiou.

The event will see live music by the OPA OPA Band and Greek dancing performances by the Sydney Greek Dancing School adults group, who will be instructed by teacher Maria Houliaras.

“Come and join us for a great afternoon of tasty food and great entertainment.”

Tickets to the event are $35 for adults and $15 for children which includes food. To secure your booking please call 0402 207 546.
