The Abruzzo and Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) holds a number of events and activities including up to 6 general Society 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 helps to promote the events and activities of other Italian American organizations in the Washington, DC area.

Our next event is the annual, and ever-popular, Ferragosto Picnic, which will be held on Sunday, August 11, 2019, at Area 2 of Fort Ward Park in Alexandria, VA, from 3:00PM-7:00PM.  This event is free, and is held rain or shine.  Just bring a basket of food and your own supplies (e.g., dishes, silverware). We provide the beverages (wine, water, soda, water).  You can read more about the event on our calendar. We hope you will join us!
