Giovanni Caboto Day

Established by the Giovanni Caboto Society to promote Italian social and cultural values in the heart of the old Italian community in Edmonton, that is, "Little Italy," Giovanni Caboto Day is generally celebrated on the last Sunday of June.

It is a family event that draws people from all over Edmonton to partake in good Italian food served by street vendors and the restaurants around Giovanni Caboto Park (formerly Princess Patricia Park). Other activities include a citizenship court, contests and sporting events, dancing and other types of entertainment.
