Offering something for everyone, the Italian Heritage Festival evolves each year, expanding on the cultural experience, and offering delectable culinary events.
As in years past, food booths will line the pathways at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn with local restaurants serving up portions of their signature dishes. Cooking demonstrations are scheduled throughout the afternoon, while volunteers prepare traditional Italian dessert favorites like cannoli and zeppole.
And because everyone knows there’s more to Italy than scrumptious food, there are also educational booths, an inflatable kid’s zone, arts, crafts, and other Italian merchandise, as well as live entertainment featuring the Hilton Head Plantation Big Band. There will be a pizza wheel where patrons can win gift certificates to local pizzerias, and competitions like grape stomping and pizza eating.
Also, shop and bid at the famous Festival Silent Auction featuring an array of items including rounds of golf, art, jewelry, gift baskets, boat rides, merchandise, and trips.
