The Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the
14th Annual La Tavola
the Italian Feast Under the Stars!
La Tavola is an evening of Italian food, drink, and music. Scheduled to take place from 5 to 9 pm on Friday, August 27th 2021, the event is back in person this year after going virtual in 2020.
Steeple Street in front of the Mashpee Library is transformed into Little Italy for this one special night of magic. For just $60 each, our 300 dinner guests will be treated to a five course Italian feast catered by Villaggio Ristorante and served by experienced volunteers. While guests dine, they will be serenaded by Aaron Caruso, the Italian Tenor. Accompanying Aaron, Corey Pesatoru the acclaimed accordionist returns by popular demand! Steeple Street Music Academy will also present several young performers to wow the crowds.
Come eat, drink, and be merry with us at the 14th Annual La Tavola. All proceeds benefit the Mashpee Chamber Scholarship Fund and #ShopMashpee campaigns.
We've made some changes to how tickets are purchased.
What have we changed?
Well, instead of purchasing individual tickets, we are only selling tables this year. Guests can chose a table for 4, 6, 8 or 10 people.
Why did we do that?
Two reasons: 1) We, like absolutely everyone else, are working with a smaller staff than we're used to, so buy only allowing purchases of entire tables, we actually alleviate alot of the organizing behind the scenes. 2) We really want *everyone* to feel comfortable. By purchasing a table and coming with friends and family who all feel comfortable together, we aren't asking folks to (literally) rub elbows. It also means we can serve food to each table in family-style, covered containers, which is a much safer way for the food to arrive to your table.
We'll share more FAQ's here once we start recieving feedback and questions. Grazie!

Mashpee Chamber’s Annual Summer Celebration
La Tavola Returns to Steeple Street on Friday, August 27th, 2021.
La Tavola, the Mashpee Chamber’s annual Italian Feast Under the Stars, is back in person this year after going virtual in 2020. The event returns to Steeple Street in front of the Mashpee Public Library on Friday, August 27th at 5pm.
For $60 per person, La Tavola guests will enjoy five courses of Italian food catered by Villaggio Ristorante, Super Stop & Shop, Polar Cave Ice Cream Parlour, Roche Bros, and Gustare Oils & Vinegars.

Guests are encouraged to bring cash for the bar and 50/50 raffle.
Of course, it wouldn’t be La Tavola without Aaron Caruso, the Italian Tenor, serenading guests. Caruso will be joined again by Championship Accordionist Corey Pesaturo. New this year, guests will also be treated to the incredibly talented Steeple Street Music Academy performers Sydney Palmer, Jared Scarpato, and Ella Langley.
