Everything Italian is embraced during Italian Day Sunday June 9th on The Drive(Commercial Drive) including food, music, fashion, dance, art, sport, history and community.
And for Italian Day 2013 – the Italian Day Festival Society is excited to offer ‘a first’ in the form of a street festival to the city of Vancouver: the world famous ‘Carnevale di Venezia’ when the event’s ‘dolce vita’ signature extends itself to Venice. In the heart of Vancouver’s ‘Little Italy’, The Drive will come alive ‘Venetian style’ with masks, costumes, street entertainers, music, food, fashion, contests and more!
From a business perspective, Italian Day 2013 will engage merchants, vendors and partners, providing an opportunity to present, demonstrate and sell products/services to the attendees. It offers an exclusive vehicle of exposure with an immensely captivated audience.
The overwhelming reception to Italian Day and its continued success is largely attributed to the support and contributions of our family of supporters: our sponsors, the City of Vancouver, event partners, media, participants, and the dedication of our volunteers and interns. Our goal is nurture these alliances while also attracting more support through our community and our partners, reinforcing this valuable event for the city of Vancouver and the tribute it pays to our Italian heritage and the historical significance of ‘The Drive’.
