Regional Club Spotlights

Regional Clubs

The heart of Festitalia since the beginning, the Regional Clubs continue to be vital to celebrating the Italian culture and passing on the traditions of our heritage. The Regional Clubs’ dedication to presenting events and activities that honour our heritage and encourage participation is invaluable.  Festitalia extends its sincere appreciation to all the volunteers from the Regional Clubs who have been key partners in bringing wonderful programming that showcases the richness of the local Italian culture.

To celebrate Italian-Canadian Heritage you can take-in the many culinary and culture events found in the photo gallery of each Club found on this page. Family members of all ages can gather together to enjoy the good times again brought to you by our Regional Clubs.
