Festa Italiana celebrates the history and heritage of Chicago’s Historic Little Italy – a place where many Italians migrated to and settled at the turn of the 20th century. For attendees young and old, Italian by blood or just at heart, the four-day street fest welcomes all those looking to enjoy a taste of Italy – right here in Chicago.
Featuring live musical performances by solo artists and bands playing on four stages, Festa Italiana will showcase some of the most talented acts around – many with a distinctly Italian influence. And of course, what would an Italian fest be without the food! Little Italy has long been a destination for some of the best Italian-American restaurants in Chicago. For those looking to find something special - shoppers will love a stroll down Taylor Street to explore the merchandise offered by local artisans selling unique handmade crafts, distinctive jewelry, clothing and accessories.
