The festival has authentic Italian food and live Italian music performed by entertainers from around the nation and from “the old country”, and a Golf Outing. Other fun includes a cooking contest, games and rides for the little ones.

Events kick off with a Bocci Ball Tournament at Pompilio’s Restaurant on Wednesday.
