Nothing says “Youngstown” like the cookie table. Born out of necessity by immigrant families who could not afford a wedding cake, this tasty tradition has been handed down for generations in the diverse ethnic community that is the Mahoning Valley. Cookie Table and Cocktails, the signature fundraising event for the Mahoning Valley Historical Society, was created to pay tribute to this beloved custom. Now in its seventh year, Cookie Table and Cocktails has become the “can’t miss” event of the season.
