Vancouver’s largest cultural street festival is coming up quick on Sunday, June 12th! Join us in celebrating a sense of community and all that is Italian on Commercial Drive, where there will be a variety of delicious Italian food, wine, and entertainment. Hailing from New York City, 1970s-sensation Tony Orlando will be there, as will local singer and songwriter Carmelina Cupo whose performance promises to kick off the event with a big bang!
This year’s theme will be Mangiamo! (Let’s Eat!), showing admiration and love for food and the Italian table. A tavola (at the table) is where conversations take place, stories are shared, hearts are open, and love and respect inspires, deepens, and strengthens.
World-famous winery, Masi, is a proud sponsor and will be present in the ‘piazza’, reminding festival goers that their elegant Venetian-style wines pair beautifully with Italian eats (and more)! Masi has deep roots in Veneto, with strong ties to historic Venetian culture, especially that of winemaking. Spearheading the unique and centuries-old Appaxximento method of winemaking, Masi has shown much dedication to Italian culture, both in the present and the past. As the #1 selling Italian brand throughout Canada, Masi is proud and honoured to be supporting the celebration of Italy!
It’s going to be a big party in Little Italy, so don’t miss out! Commercial Drive will turn into a sea of green, white, and red, coming alive with a number of attractions sure to please the multicultural city and crowds of all ages!
Mangia bene, ridi spesso, ama molto. / Eat well, laugh often, love in abundance.
