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

Village Italia is proud to announce our 10th anniversary year! In conjunction with the 45th anniversary of the International Villages Festival, our theme this year is “Sharing our Italian Heritage – la nostra storia”, which recognizes the contributions of founding, past and present members of the various Italo-Canadian organizations and clubs in the city of Brantford. Longing for traditions from the homeland, many Italian immigrants started festivals to share their traditions with the Brantford Community as a way to celebrate our diversity. This year 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 assortment 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 provide a variety of music that will make you want to get up and Tarantella with the best of us!
