Creating Community in the Heart of the Silicon Valley

Our lodge is a member of District 107, encompassing lodges in Redwood City, Saratoga, Mountain View, Cupertino, and San Jose. We’re under the jurisdiction of the California Grand Lodge, a division of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a fraternal order that traces its roots back to at least the early 18th century in England, and potentially earlier. We hold to the principles of Friendship, Love, and Truth, as we seek to create a more humane and caring world.

About us

The Odd Fellows of San Jose were first chartered in 1856 in Santa Clara. We moved into our present location nearly sixty years ago, and have been enjoying our odd fellowship together ever since. We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of each month for business. We also have regular social activities, many of which are open to non-member friends, and a few that are open to the general public.

The hall itself is often available to rent, with capacity for up to 300 (depending on the activity).

Game Nights

The best way to learn more is to meet us! Our lodge hosts a free monthly game night on the first Friday of each month, starting at 6PM. Drop in, introduce yourself, and find a board game. You might even make a friend or two!

Celebrating Friendship, Love and Truth Since 1856

We’re a little odd, sure, but the potlucks are amazing.
