A Proud Heritage

The IC takes great pride in being one of the region’s largest Italian American cultural organizations. We strive to preserve Italian heritage, culture and traditions by providing opportunities for cultural appreciation for our members and the community.

Italian cultural activities in past years have included homemade wine tasting contests, Italian movie nights, regional cooking events from local Italian social clubs and a variety of Italian book authors and entertainers.

In addition, we provide annual scholarships to local high school students for proficiency in the study of the Italian language. We also work closely with CIAO (Council of Italian American Organizations) in sponsoring and funding a variety of local events such as the annual Italian Street Festival at Columbus Park.
