Festa Al Fresco at Greenwich Historical Society: Just Like Nonna Used to Make

The Greenwich Historical Society will host its third annual Festa Al Fresco, a community potluck supper that celebrates Greenwich’s Italian-American community and the Italian immigrants who first settled here in the early 20th century Sunday, July 12, from 4-7 p.m., at the Bush-Holley Historic Site, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob.

To continue that tradition of great food and lively company, participants are asked to bring a favorite dish (enough for 6 to 8) in one of four categories: antipasti/appetizer, sides/salad, pasta/entrée and dessert.

Musical entertainment will be provided by accordionist Filippo Saglimbeni and by the VoxNova Band (Marco De Lellis on keyboard, with Gianni Gregori and Luciano Siciliano on guitar and vocals). There will be bocce on the lawn and games and crafts for kids. The Storehouse Gallery also will be open so visitors can experience the Historical Society’s current exhibition Greenwich Voices, a unique oral time capsule of life in Greenwich on the occasion of its 375th birthday. Mangiamo!
