The Famèe Furlane Club of Oakville was formed in 1968 as an Italian social club for "Le Tre Venezie" Regions. The idea behind this club was, and still stands true today, to provide a gathering spot where people of Friuli heritage could come together to embrace their culture, continue traditions and connect with others who hold their Friuli roots close.
The Famèe Furlane Club of Oakville is located in the picturesque park setting of the Fogolar Country Club of Oakville. With the support of the Fogolar Country Club, the Famèe Furlane Club of Oakville is able to run various luncheons, dinners, cultural events and other special events for families and children throughout the year.
