Welcome to Seattle’s 30th Annual Festa Italiana! Festa Italiana is an all-volunteer community organization which produces an annual series of events the last week of September, culminating in a major Italian Festival at Seattle Center. Since 1988, Festa Italiana has been celebrating the cultural roots of Italians and Italian-Americans in the Pacific Northwest by promoting the arts, the food and the culture that are uniquely Italian.
Our highlights include two concerts starring New York tenor Aaron Caruso in only his third appearance in Seattle, Celebrity Chef Rossella Rago headlining a great schedule of cooking demos, puppetry by the Olde World Puppet Theatre and a Grape Stomping competition which has to be seen to be believed! By popular demand, the Food Court & Vendor Market has been expanded as well.
Friday night at 7PM we will also present the Taste of Italy™ Wine Tasting and Opening Reception in the Armory at Seattle Center. Featuring music by Danny Quintero, over 70 Italian wines to taste, and delicious Hors d’oeuvres and antipasti from Big John’s PFI. Tickets are $25 per person and you must be 21 or older to enter. (Service charges apply.)
As always, we will again offer a wide array of cultural and educationalopportunities in which to participate and learn. Year after year, however, our main attractions continue to be food, entertainment and fun for the whole family!
