Dear Friends, Customers & Members,
As we have been since the beginning of the pandemic, we will continue to follow COVID-19 regulations set out by KFL&A and the Federal Government. Our priority has and always will be to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Anyone entering the Italo-Canadian Club of Kingston facilities are required to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with valid photo I.D. to staff prior to entering. Everyone is required to sign in daily for contact tracing purposes as they enter the building and to confirm their vaccination status. At events or functions, staff have been directed to conduct random checks with individuals throughout the event. Customers, members and visitors are encouraged to keep their Vaccination Certificate with them for this purpose.
As per KFL&A Public Health, all other health-related restrictions and safety protocols remain in effect:
• Self-screen before entering;
• Proper PPE (i.e. masks or face coverings that properly cover the chin, mouth and nose) must be worn at all times unless you are actively eating or drinking

As the fourth wave of the pandemic sweeps the country, it is comforting to know that more than 95% of Kingston Frontenac Lennox & Addington residents age 60 and older are fully vaccinated (KFL&A Public Health). The Board is dedicated to making sure that members, staff, volunteers, and visitors are confident they are safe and secure within our facility.

Welcome Chef Chris!
Welcome to our brand new Chef de Cuisine, Chris Couto!
A native of Kingston, Chris has returned after having spent the last 15 years of his career in Toronto, graduating from the Culinary Management Program at George Brown College in 2008. He began his career with leading hospitality group Oliver & Bonacini at The Toronto Board of Trade. As his young career began to grow, he soon joined the opening team at Malaparte located in the TIFF Bell Lightbox where he developed and refined his culinary techniques. After spending two years at Malaparte, Chris joined the team at Arcadian Court as a Sous Chef at one of the largest event venues in Toronto, hosting corporate and social events. In moving up the ladder, he received nominations for the 30 Under 30 recognition program and several promotions later, Chris accepted the position of Chef de Cuisine. In 2019, he rejoined the team at Malaparte in the Chef role, pushing all he had learned and developed in the large-scale environment into refined techniques and an elevated food experience. With the ever-changing pandemic, Chris saw an opportunity to bring all he has learned back to his hometown and has now joined us here at the Italo-Canadian Club. Chris will be relieving our volunteers of preparing the weekly takeout – they certainly deserve a break after all of their hard work – and taking on all responsibilities in the kitchen for both takeout and events.

Welcome to Italo-Canadian Club of Kingston
The Italo-Canadian Club is one of the largest banquet facilities in Kingston and has been around for over 50 years as an esteemed event venue and not-for-profit cultural club known for amazing food, Italian hospitality, and a beautiful ballroom. The original club building and the land we are on was purchased and built by the Italian community. we have grown since 1963, but remain dedicated to being a social centre for Italians and Canadians alike. To this day much of the work is still done by Italian volunteers.
We believe beautiful events can be accessible at any budget. That is why we remain one of the most affordable banquet halls in Kingston. Whether you are planning a small intimate affair or a large-scale celebration, we are the perfect choice for your special day.
Our facility can accommodate any number of events: weddings, conferences, fundraisers, galas, private parties, and more! Our chef has meshed Italian and Canadian cuisine to create a variety of menus to suit all occasions and budgets. Should you require something specific or dietary restricted, our chef will work with you to create a customized menu or modify an existing one.
Our Club is equipped with the following features:
Ballroom (seats up to 300 people)
Our grand ballroom, hand-built by the original Italian members of the club more than fifty years ago, is the heart of the Italo-Canadian Club of Kingston. Its classic architecture will transport you to Europe, while its intimate size keeps your party feeling connected. With enough room to seat 350 guests comfortably and still host a dance floor, this is a great option for weddings and galas.
Our Saletta is the ideal option for smaller events, from private parties and club meetings to bridal showers, or as a cocktail hour station before your wedding reception. The Saletta features its own bar and an adjoining outdoor patio (seasonal).
Whether you’re hosting an event for a party of three hundred or twenty, you have the option to include a staffed bar as part of your event.
Stay connected throughout your event with event-specific hashtags, live videos for friends who aren’t able to attend in person, and more with complimentary wi-fi.
