The Summer Festa Picnic is a long-standing family event held by the Society every year since its founding in 1929.

The picnic brings a small piece of Italy and its traditions to central Illinois each summer. What began as a social event for Italian immigrants has evolved into the Society's major fundraiser for its three scholarship programs.

Indeed, the picnic has become a major, family-centered, community event attended by hundreds of people.

 

Join us at the Festa for food, fun, and family. We are extremely pleased to announce that The Vince Chiarelli Band will be back for the 2014 Festa.

Authentic Italian recipies prepared by Barrack's Cater Inn: Lasagna, adult and children's spaghetti meals; meatball, sausage and Italian beef sandwiches. There will also be a variety of homemade Italian desserts including cannoli, Italian Ice (granita) and pizzelles.

Italian and domestic beer, wines, soda and water.

 

A large variety of Italian t-shirts, hats, pins and other items of Italian regalia including the Society's own cook book will be available.

 

The park is open to guests of all ages. Admission is $3 per adult at the gate. Children under 12 years old are free. Tickets will not be sold in advance.
