Benvenuti to Village Italia - Welcome to the Village Italia village italia logo

Village Italia is proud to announce our 10th anniversary year! Once again, our theme this year is “Sharing our Italian Heritage – la nostra storia”. The Italian immigrants brought their traditions with them to Canada. From the harvest, to family celebrations such as weddings, to starting festivals, the Italian immigrant shared and blended their traditions with the Canadian ones in a celebration of our unique Italo-Canadian culture. Therefore, we honour not only the Italian immigrant, but the first and second-generation ItaloCanadians who continue to share their heritage with the community at large, embracing all citizens of Brantford into la famiglia (our family).

On behalf of the Italian Community, Village Italia would like to invite you to come and share with us our history, culture, entertainment and most of all, the best of Italian cuisine there is to offer.

Once again, this year, we are excited to have continuous entertainment featuring Vinz DeRosa and Claudio Santaluce. Both gentlemen will be providing a variety of music that will make you want to get up and tarantella with the best of us! As an added attraction the duo of Pierina and Ivano will perform from 4-9 on Saturday, July 6th, 2019

Village Italia will run from 5:00 – 10:30 Wednesday & Thursday, 5:00 – 11:00 on Friday and 4:00 – 12:00 on Saturday. So come and experience la dolce vita with us!
