Italian Heritage Month

Did you know that June is officially recognized as Italian Heritage Month by the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, and the City of Vancouver?  To celebrate this prestigious designation, we invite you to come celebrate Italian food, music, literature and film with us all month long!

Join us for free concerts; catch a movie in the Vancouver leg of the Contemporary Italian Film Festival or watch a movie right here under the stars at Il Centro!  Spend a day with your family at “Italian Day on the Drive” on Sunday June 9th and don’t forget to visit us at Il Centro on Friday June 14th for our Italian market, with a variety of Italian products, food and music.

Come celebrate everything Italian with us here, at Il Centro, in June!
