Back To Our Roots For 30th Anniversary Festival
  Our 2016 festival is our 30th year celebrating Italian-American heritage and providing scholorship funds to Stark County graduating seniors. To help commemorate the occasion, we are moving our festival back to downtown Canton where it began 30 years ago. Please join us this summer, June 23-25, around Market Square in Canton for the same great food and free entertainment as we begin a new chapter in our history. Admission is free and open to the public.
