The first annual Festa Italiana SLC was held in 2015. Over 10,000 people enjoyed the surroundings of beautiful downtown Salt Lake City, while exploring the culture, entertainment, and culinary diversity of Italy.
Festa Italiana SLC is a non-profit, Italian Festival in Salt Lake City. Proceeds from the festival will support local and national non-profit charitable organizations supported by the Italian-American Civic League of Utah.
Whether among family, friends or strangers, food serves as the backbone for any social arrangement…hence why it is an important centerpiece to the festival. The festival features a wide variety of local Italian restaurants serving unique and authentic food. Please come down and enjoy some of the amazing culinary traditions of Italy brought to you by some of Utah’s finest Italian Chefs and Restaurants.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
