ITALIAN WEEKEND – POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 13 – 15, 2019

HALIFAX – With the impending approach of Dorian to our shores, the Italian Canadian Cultural Association of Nova Scotia (ICCA) announces the postponement and rescheduling of Italian Weekend to September 13 - 15, 2019. We will then once again open our doors to the community for our annual three-day Festival. In consideration of our volunteers and attendees, we have decided to play it safe for all involved.

Next weekend, we ask you to join us for authentic Italian cuisine and music, along with Italian cooking and language classes. Italian Weekend delivers Italy to Halifax in a three-day experience that the entire family can enjoy! Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy presentations, wine tasting, games and face-painting for the children!

Run by volunteers, the ICCA has become the city’s ‘Little Italy’ creating a space for Italian-Canadians to congregate, along with many others who want to experience “La Bella Vita!”. More than 200 volunteers spearhead this event every year: an event that was created by past generations and continues to be appreciated by the youth of today.

We welcome all members of the community to enjoy a weekend in Italy at the ICCA’s Italian Weekend Festival on September 13-15!

Friday, Sept. 13th, 5-10pm
Saturday, Sept. 14th, 11am-10pm
Sunday, Sept. 15th, 11am-8pm
