Join AMHS for The Ferragosto Picnic on Sunday, August 14, 2022

By Maria D’Andrea-Yothers


The AMHS will be returning to Fort Ward Park in Alexandria, Va., for this year’s Ferragosto Picnic, Sunday, August 14, 2022, from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. We have reserved Area 5 (not the covered pavilion), which has 9 large picnic tables, two grills, and plenty of parking.

The event is free and open to all, rain or shine. As in prior years, AMHS will provide beverages (soft drinks, water, wine, and beer which, according to our ABC license, can only be drunk from kegs in plastic cups).  We ask members, friends and family to bring a basket of food to share, paper products and utensils, and Italian cards.  You may also want to bring lawn chairs and a personal portable grill, so long as it is charcoal only.  Bring your bocce sets too — while there is no “official” bocce court, we can make our own. We hope you will bring your family and friends to join the afternoon of fun and friendship.  For additional details, please see AMHS Annual Ferragosto Picnic (
