COS COB, Conn. -- The Greenwich Historical Society will host its third annual Festa Al Fresco, a community potluck supper that celebrates Greenwich's Italian-American community and the Italian immigrants who first settled here in the early 20th century.

The event will take place Sunday, July 12, from 4-7 p.m. at Bush-Holley Historic Site, 39 Strickland Road.

To continue a tradition, participants are asked to bring a favorite dish (enough for six to eight people) in one of four categories: antipasti/appetizer; sides/salad; pasta/entrée; and dessert.

Musical entertainment will be provided by accordionist Filippo Saglimbeni and by the VoxNova Band (Marco De Lellis on keyboard, with Gianni Gregori and Luciano Siciliano on guitar and vocals).

There will be bocce on the lawn and games and crafts for kids. The Storehouse Gallery will also be open so visitors can experience the historical society's current exhibition Greenwich Voices, a unique oral time capsule of life in Greenwich on the occasion of its 375th birthday.

Reservations are required. Visit or call 203-869-6899, ext. 10. To indicate what you plan to bring, contact or call 203-869-6899, ext. 31.
