January 23, 2011


We are all aware of the COVID-19 crisis in our country and the necessary precautions required to protect the health and safety of our families and friends. Due to State regulations restricting public and private gatherings, we have cancelled the Italian-American Heritage Festival of Iowa that was scheduled for this summer. Once we have weathered this crisis, we will begin to focus our efforts on planning the next festival.



The 2020 Italian-American Heritage Festival of Iowa will once again feature fresh, locally-produced food and specialties.  All your favorites ………… plus something new!
