President, Club Italiano per piacere
The Italian Community of St Louis will host its 2nd Annual Gran Festa di Ferragosto at Shaw Park in Clayton on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 3:00pm to 10:00 pm. Our celebration of Ferragosto is a family oriented event where adults and youngsters are equally welcomed. The nearby sand volleyball court and playground are available for our use. We will serve plenty of food, from antipasto to grilled chicken and sausage, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served, and we ask that everyone bring a dish and/or beverage of their choice to share. Bring whatever you like best; we might even have a contest for the best recipe.
This event is organized by ItaliaUSA, Italiano Per Piacere and the Comunità degli Italiani - St. Louis, assisted by Giovani Italiani Saint Louis, Saint Louis - Bologna Sister City Committee and is generously offered by our main sponsors VOLPI and ARTECO, as well as by your organizations UNICO, CTIM, COMITES, DEVOTI DI SAN GIUSEPPE and the Italian-American publication IL PENSIERO.
Also supporting and present at the festivities will be our special guests: the Honorable Fucsia Fitzgerald Nissoli, the elected Representative of the Italian Parliament for North and Central America and the Honorable Joseph Colagiovanni, Honorary Vice Consul of Italy at St. Louis.
