Italian Heritage Day is an annual program offered by the Senator John Heinz History Center that occurs on the first Sunday of October. The main objective of Italian Heritage Day is to offer fun, interactive activities for families to learn about Italian American history and culture together. All activities, which are facilitated by local organizations and museum representatives, are designed with the whole family in mind; we have arranged them so that tutta la famiglia can play together.
Besides fun family activities, Italian Heritage Day also features local Italian American organizations that offer programming in our region year round. Visit the bazaar to find out where they meet, when they meet, and what aspect of the Italian culture they specialize in. Learn how you can celebrate your Italian heritage every day!
