The Italian American Club (IAC) of Jacksonville returns this year with their second annual spring time festival. Italian Spring Festa is a two-day event on April 16 and 17 celebrating all things Italy.

IAC President Mario Cortese invites the public to attend Italian Spring Festa "for an authentic taste of Italy and Italian hospitality." The menu includes Italian classics like eggplant parmesan and baked ziti. Beer and wine will be available as well as desserts like biscotti, cannoli and tiramisu.

This event is fun for the whole family with music, games, and a kid zone. The festival is held at the IAC clubhouse at 2838 Westberry Rd.

Admission is free, but food and drinks are for purchase.
