Event Date: Jun 10, 2021 - Jun 20, 2021
The vision of the Ottawa Italian Week Festival is to bring an event that shares in celebrating the rich diversity of the Italian-Canadian community where we can share our culture, food and drink, music, artisans and the vibrant passions of its people.
For over forty years, the Ottawa Italian Week Festival remains one of the oldest and largest cultural festivals in Ottawa. It continues to grow each year drawing a large number of residents and tourists to Ottawa’s Little Italy on Preston Street. The Italian Week Festival wants to reach the greater Ottawa community, non-Italians, to celebrate what it means to be Italian.
This year’s festival will bring people together virtually through, food, culture, stories, virtual workshops and more. An Italian Week festival box is also available to help you celebrate Italian Week at home.
