Italian American Heritage and Culture Month 2021! 

The JCCIA invites you to participate in our celebration of Italian American Heritage and Culture Month.
Listed on our calendar are events and names of Italians who came before us, and notable Italian Americans contributing to our history and heritage. 


While there are countless more Italian Americans whose names should be on this calendar, limited space prohibits it. However, we will continue to compile names of worthy honorees for the future.
October is our month to honor, embrace, and show support to our fellow Italian Americans in all industries.
Please print out the first calendar for display and click on the interactive calendar of events below for more information.
