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.
