Celebrating 40 Years of Italian Style Food, Music & Culture!
Opening Friday, September 4 at 4:00 PM on Labor Day Weekend 2015!
SCRANTON, Pa.— Great food, live entertainment and fun for everyone are on the menu for the annual La Festa Italiana to be held Friday-Saturday-Sunday-Monday of Labor Day weekend, September 4-7, 2015, on Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton. This is La Festa’s 40th anniversary!
La Festa Italiana will literally hit the ground running with the James R. Minicozzi Memorial 5K Run/Walk .
La Festa Italiana has something for everyone. As usual, approximately 80 vendors will offer a wide variety of foods and displays. Italian favorites are cooked and served daily, presenting festival goers with the dilemma of which tempting dish to try next. The Cappuccino Café on the N. Washington Ave. plaza is a favorite gathering spot.
Continuous live entertainment for both young and older tastes is presented around the square!
The annual Mass in Italian will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6, in St. Peter’s Cathedral, located one block from the festival site.
New entertainers will be added daily. Click here for the entertainment schedule.
Festival patrons are also invited to Lackawanna Railfest ’15, hosted by the nearby Steamtown Shuttle transportation will be provided between La Festa and Steamtown. Click here for details on Railfest 2015.
