The Casa Italiana Italian Cultural Center in Burien is where the fun will be on Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., during their annual Vespa Festa.
You can enjoy a host of activities, including eating Italian food and pastries, sipping celebratory wines and beers, watching an Apulian Pizzica-style dance demonstration, tapping your feet to Italian music , shopping at the Rosso Gardens Plant Stand, as well as Casa’s Italian Market.
And of course, at the center of the festivities, you’ll see a plethora of Vespas from vintage to modern, and you can also buy raffle tickets to win your very own Vespa! Raffle tickets are available NOW and you do not need to be present to win. The winner will be drawn at random during the Festa.
This event is entirely dedicated to celebrating Italy’s iconic scooters, with proceeds to support the continued vitality and growth of the Italian cultural center Casa Italiana de Burien.
While you’re there, be sure to visit Casa Caffe where you can find authentic and delicious coffee, pastries, paninis and ice cream every day – not just for the festival. La Casa Italiana is a remarkable addition to the cultural scene of our region. Inside, you’ll find exhibits honoring the contributions of Seattle’s founding Italian families, a history steeped in resilience, hard work, and staunch determination.
