Food, music, and a weekend of games and fellowship are returning to Guilford this month, in the form of St. George’s Church annual Italian Festival. Organized by the St. George’s Men’s Group, the event has grown over the past six years into a two-day extravaganza featuring live music, lawn games, cooking competitions, and of course, as much delicious home-made Italian food as you can eat.
