 La Festa Italiana: The Quintessential Flavors of Sicily

Saturday, October 14. 5:00 pm and 7:15pm.
Venue: Hershey History Center

Our 26th gala celebrates 103 years of history of Italian-Americans in Hershey. 


October is Italian-American Heritage Month, first celebrated in 1989 when it was proclaimed by President and Congress of the U.S. to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the United States.


For 103 years, Italian-Americans in Hershey have made incredible contributions to shape Hershey into such a great place to live and visit.  Hershey landmarks such as DeAngelis Restaurant, Pronio's Market, and the Italian Lodge are a few examples of wonderful places that contributed to our town.  

Celebrate with us by reserving your tickets for this one-of-a-kind event.

Our Preservation Gala is an annual celebration and an opportunity to revisit important places and events in our history. In particular, it serves to engage the community in our mission, and to recognize and honor prominent architecture and historical landmarks through the presentation of our preservation.
