Ferragosto! This traditional August 15th picnic dates back to Roman emperor Augustus. Italians grill out, pack a lunch and go "fouri porta", or simply double down on their August vacation. Here in the Seattle area we reserve a shelter in one of our great parks, get together, relax, and catch up on our summer before heading into the fall. Ferragosto remains one of our most popular events.
Planning is in the works. Please check back here and watch for newsletter announcements in the coming weeks! Volunteers needed and appreciated!
