Celebrate Italian Heritage on Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Italian FestivalThe Lowcountry has a little bit of the “old country” and every year it’s celebrated in the fall at the Italian Heritage Festival. This year’s event is scheduled for Sept. 13 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn and will feature a great mix of food, music, and a hefty dose of Italian culture.

Does the smell of garlic set your stomach growling? Take your pick of delicious Italian fare at the festival from pizzas, pastas, gelatos, mozzarella, limoncello and so much more. If you really want to get your fill, join the pizza eating contest! You can also learn how to cook some of these dishes yourself, just like a real Italian nonna (grandmother), at a variety of cooking demonstrations.

Wine lovers will enjoy the grape stomping contest a la the famous “I Love Lucy” episode. Or if you want to get active, try your hand at a number of sporting events, including bocce, golf and stickball or test your strength at the hammer and bell. There will also be live entertainment, a dunk tank and booths from local restaurants.

While you might be surrounded by palm trees, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the Italian countryside, even if just for a day…

Tickets are $5 for general admission. For more information about the festival or to purchase tickets in advance, visit
