our Italian heritage alive that we have inherited from our nonni. The actual St.
Joseph’s Day is March 18 - CIAO did not choose Sunday March 17 for the date of our
event so that our Irish (Irlandesi) friends could celebrate their patron saint, St.
Patrick. More informaton will follow on Facebook, our website, and in a future
We are honored to have hosted the US Air Force Heritage Band on Friday, November 16. It was a wonderful concert, and we look forward to having them come back to Auburn again next year!

"C.I.A.O.", the Cultural Italian American Organization, was formed to promote and enhance Italian American Heritage and Culture in Cayuga County, located in the Finger Lakes region of New York state.
C.I.A.O.'s motto is culture and caritas (charity) and to recognize Italian American achievements in our community.
