Don’t delay as we anticipate this event will sell out! 

Carnevale is one of the most colorful celebrations in the world. In Italy, we are serious about it. In the end, this is where it was born. Every village celebrates, every family cooks up a storm to honor this century long tradition of dancing, masquerading and feasting before the fasting and meditating of Lent.

Our local celebration begins with an antipasti buffet, followed by potato gnocchi as a primo piatto. The secondo piatto is roasted porchetta prepared and hand-carved by Due Cucina of Capitol Hill. For dolci we will have mini-cannoli filled on site by Kelly Cannoli of Lake City. The kitchen will be open from 6 until 9 PM with the cannoli station open until 9:30. We will also have a cash bar where wine, acqua minerale, and soft drinks may be purchased. In addition to music and dancing, the evening will include costume and mask contests concluding with the announcement of the lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle.

Advance ticket sales deadline extended to  February 6! 

Tickets are still available at regular price of $50 for adults and $20 for youths. After February 6 a limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $60 on a first come/first served basis until 100 tickets are sold (we are getting close!) There is no guarantee tickets will be available at the door, so hurry and get your tickets right now!
