Little Italy FESTA!!! – Join Us on Sunday, 10/10/2010 (10AM – 6PM)…

10/10/2010 – (Sunday, 10AM – 6PM) Little Italy FESTA!  In 1994, a dream came to fruition. In the month of October, 16 years ago, the Little Italy community opened its streets to not only San Diego residents, but the many other communities throughout the nation.

The Little Italy Association (LIA) and a small group of community members organized a festival that celebrated Italian culture not only in the entertainment provided, on the one stage, but the types of vendors that were allowed to display their wares along India Street.

Now, the Little Italy Festa is known to be one of the largest Italian American festivals on the West Coast. The Little Italy community now welcomes over 120,000 attendees with the tantalizing smells of Italian sausage and the glamour of the Italian culture, music and art.

Alongside the growth of this Fall community event, the Little Italy neighborhood has embraced the charm of our old community and welcomed the fresh urban mixed-use developments that have sprouted up throughout Little Italy’s 48– square blocks.

Through the growth and recognition of San Diego’s, very own, Little Italy; we have been able to expand and develop new events. These events were not only established to bring others to Little Italy, but to provide entertainment and shopping for the over 2,400 residents and property owners that call Little Italy home.

The LIA Board of Directors and Staff work year-round to bring you such events as: the Little Italy Mercato (Farmers’ Market), Carnevale, Mission Federal ArtWalk, the Annual State of the Neighborhood Dinner Reception, the Bulls of St. Agata Charge Little Italy (Lamborghini Show), Trick-or-Treat on India Street, two Taste of Little Italys, and the Holiday Tree Lighting.
