The Old Country Comes to The Low Country
The Italian-American Club of Hilton Head is excited to host the 7th annual Italian Heritage Festival. This event gets bigger every year and this year's celebration will be no exception. We're thrilled to be back at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn.
As always, the festival is a robust celebration of Italian culture with food and live entertainment. Our crowd-pleasing grape stomping contest will return as will our pizza eating contest! The festival will offer a full slate of activities for locals and visitors.
A number of booths will be dedicated to traditional Italian foods, such as cheeses, breads, pasta, fish, meatballs, sausage and calzones, and delicious sweets, including Italian ice, gelato, cannolis and zeppoles – many sponsored by local restaurants.
The festival will also feature live entertainment, bocce (one of Italy’s national pastimes), and the return of the dunk tank.
The Hilton Head Italian Heritage Festival will be held Saturday, September 17, 2016, 11 am – 4 pm, at the Coastal Discovery Musem at Honey Horn – rain or shine. No pets please!
