FALL 2021

Our celebration of 100-plus years of Italian history and heritage in Hershey will continue into 2021.


To comply with state standards on gatherings and to ensure our members' well-being, we have postponed our La Festa Italiana Gala until October 2021.  


Stay tuned for updates on a celebration that can only happen once in a century!  Sign up to receive event information with our email newsletter and get the latest announcements.  

Each year our events focus on an historic theme about Hershey and Derry Township.   

Last year's Preservation Gala showcased the 85-year history of the Hershey Figure Skating Club.
