Vancouver is getting ready to host the highly-anticipated Italian Day on Commercial Drive.
On Sunday, June 10, you’ll have the unique opportunity to experience the essence of European culture without even having to leave the city. And this year it’s going to be even better because the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada-West (ICCCW), is hosting a must-attend Piazza event.
Taking place just east of Commercial Drive on Grant Street, the event is going to feature a fully-licensed tasting zone where you’ll find gastronomic delights created by local chefs. Here, you can kick back, drink some wine and enjoy some premium Italian aperitivi.
Some of the unique Italian food offerings are being flown into the city especially for this one-time event, so you can feel very important knowing that you’ll get to try them.
The Authentic Italian Table is bringing back pure flavours, celebrating certified Italian ingredients, and bringing Canadians the extraordinary taste of traditional dishes.
Vendors of the Authentic Italian Table Piazza include; Ferrero, Campari, Bibo Pizzeria, Cioffi, Sciue`, De Denedetto Food Imports, and Consorzio Prosciutto di Parma, among many others.
Brush up on your pasta making skills as you watch game-changing demonstrations by a well-seasoned pasta maker who will bring Italian goodness to life before your eyes.
Tickets to the Authentic Italian Table’s Piazza event cost just $20 each and come with 12 coupons that you can spend in the tasting area.
Whether you want to buy fresh pasta, prosciutto, a panini, cheese, or fine wines, is up to you. (No judgment if you spend all of the tokens on wine).
Save time on waiting in line on the day by purchasing your tickets for the event via Eventbrite now.
Also, you’ll be happy to know that the event is taking place as part of The Extraordinary Italian Taste program.
This program promotes authentic Italian agri-food products, and it’s promoted and financed by the Ministry of Economic Development in collaboration with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West (ICCC) and other eight Italian Chambers of Commerce in North America (Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Mexico City).
