NIAF
Italian Festivals



Below is a list of Italian and Italian American festivals held around the country. It was compiled by the National Italian American Foundation.

This list reflects the response to a recent survey of our members, and is updated bi-annually.

If your state or city is not listed, we suggest calling the visitors’ bureau or the local parish in the Italian section of your city or town.

If you want us to add a festival for next year’s list, please send the state, city, name of the festival, dates, and the name and telephone number of a contact person to Alexandra Dall, adall@niaf.org, or you can mail your festival to:

NIAF Research Department
1860 - 19th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20009


Thank you for your interest and ... Buon Divertimento!

The NIAF funds scholarships, internships, conferences and other programs, and promotes closer cultural and economic ties with Italy. For information, visit our home page at www.niaf.org.
