Join us for our traditional gathering to celebrate the season

Saturday, Dec. 3rd at 4:00-6:00 pm ET

Chevy Chase Village Hall

5906 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD 20815

Grazie a tutti per aver partecipato!

While children are entertained in a Christmas Workshop (offered by Le D.I.V.E.), adults will enjoy a piano performance by Maestro Giampiero Bugliarello, with the participation of violinist Caterina Vannucci; a performance of the ICS children’s choir and a brief recital of poems will follow. A sing-along of carols will introduce Babbo Natale (Santa Claus) and Befana as they arrive to distribute gifts to the children. Please bring a wrapped gift to leave at the reception with your child’s name for Santa’s distribution!

The event will end with “il brindisi”, a toast with Prosecco, food and traditional panettone to toast to a New Year filled with peace and joy!

Please let us know IF YOU DO NOT WANT your child to appear in pictures on the ICS website or social media. Email to [email protected]


The event is SOLD OUT.
