Festa Italiana 2017
September 16, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until September 17, 2017
The Italian-American Civic League of Utah (IACL) is pleased to announce Festa Italiana—held Sept. 16-17, 2017 at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City. Festa Italiana is sponsored by Alfa Romeo Salt Lake City.
Festa Italiana will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The third annual festival will provide locals with an authentic Italian street festival experience that is prevalent in many other cities across the country. Admission to Festa Italiana is free and open to the public.
Highlights of the festival include: more than a dozen local Italian restaurants serving unique and authentic Italian food, non-stop performances by Italian musical artists, beer and specialty Italian wine, and local and Italian artist showcases.
“After visiting Italian festivals in some of the great cities across the country, our organization wanted to bring Italian culture, food, and entertainment to the people of Salt Lake,” said Festival Director Nick Fuoco. “It is our goal to give a little taste of what we know as Italian-Americans to everyone who attends the festival.”
Festa Italiana is a non-profit festival, funded in part by residents of Salt Lake County through the Zoo, Arts, & Parks (ZAP) Program. A portion of this year’s proceeds will go to support Catholic Community Services.
