On behalf of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy Trieste Lodge #4 in Hamilton, we invite you to celebrate "Cent'Anni" with us on Sunday, September 11th at Confederation Park - Willow Cove Pavilion in Hamilton. 


There will be something for everyone as we celebrate the rich Italian culture, with a traditional picnic to bring back all of those wonderful memories we would have experienced  with our "Nonni." Whether you choose to prepare your own meal, or choose from some of our food options for purchase, you will be able to enjoy great entertainment, and some family friendly activities.

Family is above all the most important aspect of our culture, and what better way than to celebrate with all generations, over a table with those near and dear.


Invite your family, invite your friends, reunite with those whom you may have lost touch, and join us as we celebrate the beginning of the next chapter in our history.


We look forward to having you!

Is there a cost associated with this event? 
No, it is a free admission event however there will be a cost associated for those who plan on purchasing their food on site

Can I bring my dog? 
As this is our first pilot event we are not able to accurately estimate the amount of people joining us for the event and therefore we do not recommend bringing pets if it is too crowded and may disrupt the operations.

Is it a family-oriented event? 
Absolutely, we will have a bouncy castle as well as various treats for the younger ones. We want this to be an opportunity for the whole family to join in the celebrations.

What if it rains the day of the picnic? 
The event will continue as we have access to the Willow Cove Pavillion, should anything change we will send out an e-mail and provide an announcement on our website.

Does it matter when I arrive or leave? 
The event will run from approximately 10AM to 7PM and there will be various entertainment throughout the day but there is no limits to when you can join or leave though we hope you can spend the whole day with us!

What should I bring? 
As the amount of picnic tables offered are limited, it is highly encouraged for you to bring table and chairs in the event that those offered are no longer available. Besides tables and chairs you may want to bring the usual picnic items such as: blankets, coolers, ice, snacks, cups, plates, paper towels, lawn games, portable bbq, umbrella/ small tent, lot's of water, sunscreen, hat, etc.
