Little Italy FESTA!

Experience Italian culture, food and fun as the

Little Italy Association 

prepares for its

18th Annual Little Italy FESTA! 

October 14, 2012.

Attracting over 120,000 people,

Little Italy’s FESTA!

features tasty Italian cuisine, traditional and modern Italian music, arts and activities for all ages,

and many other event features.

With over 150 food, art and retail vendors,

the Little Italy community transforms into a cultural Italian escape

for both locals and visitors.

Attendees of this year’s FESTA! will find themselves completely immersed in Italian culture.

There will also be a host of Italian food choices

including popular restaurants and vendor booths,

as well as tastes from the festival’s “Italian Table” stage

which will feature chef demonstrations on how to prepare classic and contemporary Italian dishes.

Three stages of entertainment will set the tone with an array of ethnic music.

For those 21 and up, LIA will present a beer and wine garden

featuring Italian and local favorite brews.

One of the most highly anticipated elements of event is the chalk art at

“Gesso Italiano.”

Gesso Italiano brings more than 160 artists and teams together from across the nation

to create colorful works of art using chalk as their medium and the city streets as their canvas.

This year’s theme for these amazing chalk paintings is

“Regions of Italy”.

This special art experience is authentically based on the traditional art form originating in Italy.

The artwork takes two days to complete,

and available for viewing only during the FESTA! weekend,

as the city streets will be washed at the end of the event.
