Community Spotlight: Festa Italiana

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Milwaukee’s Italian community has established itself in the city’s old Third Ward, but had been split apart by urban renewal projects in the late 1950’s. Looking for a way to reunite the local Italian community, the idea of Festa Italiana was born in 1978. The first Festa attracted the local Italian community, but attracted people from multiple ethnic backgrounds as well.

Live Italian Festa 2014 is the place to be for Italian music and entertainment, from traditional to contemporary hits. The lakefront will play host to a full line-up of Italian performers including Patrizio Buanne, Moreno Fruzzetti, Franco Corso, Tre Bella, Vince Chiarelli, Natalie Pinto, comedian Stephen Sorrentino, Tony Spavone, Russo Brothers, Dick Contino and The Bronx Wanderers! Also coming is one of country’s top Bruce Springsteen acts, Bella Cain, and Matt Macis and Hannah Timm.

Eat Italian Grab a plate and eat like an Italian with rice balls, Italian sausage sandwiches, fried eggplant strips, calamari, Panini, pasta and cannoli. With close to 40 food vendors to choose from, your stomach is guaranteed to leave full. Cucina Showcase is back featuring local and celebrity chefs to demonstrate their favorite Italian dishes. Don’t forget the vino — experience Festa’s wine tastings featuring some of the most famous and sought-after wines.
