The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities each year including:

  • Up to 6 general membership meetings per year, including a wine tasting;

  • The annual Ferragosto picnic and Carnevale

These events are sponsored by AMHS or held in conjunction with other Italian American organizations. AMHS also promotes the events and activities of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area.

NEXT AMHS Event: Please join us on Sunday, August 15, from 3:00PM-7:00PM for the Ferragosto Picnic, co-sponsored by AMHS and the Casa Italiana Sociocultural Center (CISC).  This year the picnic moves to Ben Brenman Park, Alexandria, VA. We have reserved a covered pavilion with 10 picnic tables and one charcoal grill.  Within walking distance are a playground and enclosed restrooms.  There is also ample parking space. AMHS and CISC 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 only ask members, friends, family to bring their own food, paper products and utensils.

The event is free, and our members, families and friends are welcome. Please note that we do ask all guests to RSVP by August 10 to Maria D’Andrea-Yothers at (703) 473-4033.
