Our friends in Perugia explained that this year was naturally more subdued for Carnevale in February. Usually celebrated with parties and parades including masks and music, 2021 was a quieter event at home. But not without traditional sweets such as struffoli and frappe! Take a look at some of the photos they sent of the delicious desserts and table settings our Italian members created.
Even during these uncertain times, the Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association is working hard to provide fun Italian content and activities during lockdown. Check out our Events tab here for our up-to-date calendar of events, including fascinating interviews with our friends in Perugia, cooking demos, lectures, Tavola conversation group, and more!
Join the Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association in Fisher Pavilion at the Seattle Center. Stop by, say hi, and buy your raffle tickets for a one-week trip to Perugia. Better yet, volunteer to help at our booth.
Highlights of Festa Italiana include Chef Marco Scortino of the local cooking show Come Dine with Me WNY, and other local chefs, 16 musical acts on the Main Stage, a variety of Italian-themed exhibits-art, automobiles, dogs, photos and of course food vendors.

August is here, which means our annual picnic and membership meeting is just around the corner. Once again, we'll gather in Ravensdale, Washington, at the historic Borracchini farm. Only 45 minutes from Seattle, this lovely corner of King County feels like a world away.
Our host and long-time SPSCA member, Dan Borracchini, always makes a fantastic pasta dish. Board members will be busy grilling Italian sausages, as well.
Everything else is potluck. We ask that you contribute a salad, antipasto dish, snacks or a dessert, plus whatever you'd like to drink, both alcoholic and non.
So grab your sunscreen, straw hats and hearty appetites, and head for the hills of Ravensdale!
