As we here at the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce busily prepare for the Annual La Tavola Italian Feast, I just realized something. It has been eleven years since I was in Italy. Eleven years! I would love to return to the place my ancestors came from, cities such as Rome and Venice. However, even though it might be many years before I can return to Italy, I don’t have to worry long about waiting for an Italian feast! The 11th Annual La Tavola Italian Feast Under the Stars Sponsored by Laurentide at Mashpee Commons is just a month away!
Last year was my first time attending La Tavola, and even though I was busy working behind the scenes taking pictures and doing the video work, I had the opportunity to sit down and relish what can be described as one of the best Italian meals I’ve ever had outside Italy. All that hard work we do truly pays off when we see our guests happy and smiling as they chat with their family, friends, and neighbors all the while being swooned by Italian tenor Aaron Caruso and clapping their hands in joy.
When is this year La Tavola Italian Feast? Friday, August 17th.
What time should you arrive for the feast? 5:30 PM the doors open, and guests will be seated promptly.
Where will the 11th Annual La Tavola be held? On Steeple Street in front of the Mashpee Public Library.
What is La Tavola? A five course Italian Feast, catered by Villaggio Ristorante.
Who does all the hard work at La Tavola? Volunteers and the Mashpee Chamber.
Will there be entertainment? Italian Tenor, Aaron Caruso, brings the true sounds of Italy to the streets of Mashpee, as well as an accordion player and a violinist.
How much are the tickets? Tickets to La Tavola cost $50 and includes your first beverage of the evening. Cash bar will also be available at the event. In addition to that, raffles will be available as well – 50/50 and our annual Italy trip raffle. So be sure to bring some extra cash!
