Join us for the 40th Annual Italian Family Festa at History Park San Jose, August 20 and 21, 2022. We are putting the family back in the Italian Family Festa with the addition of our new children’s area, Ragazzi Zona, sponsored by Harker School. Set in a large grass area where families can relax and children can hear Italian story tellers, enjoy crafts, and learn a little Italian along with all the fun.
AUGUST 20-21, 2022
History Park San Jose
Saturday 11am-8pm – Sunday 11am-6pm
This year we are honored to host the United States Navy brass band, along with a few friendly Naval robots that love to share and show off for the crowd. Stop by, say hi and support our troops.
This year, the Roma Stage will feature musical acts with performances from Mike Annuzzi, Blue House, Bella Ciao, John DeMers, a tribute to Sinatra and our “Saturday Night Street Dance” with Livewire, a Bay Area favorite tribute band. A special Sunday only Festa favorite performance by the Anthony “Nino” Lane Band, bringing all generations of music lovers together.
Unwind and enjoy a culinary demonstration on the La Cucina Galbani® Cooking Stage with Galbani’s celebrity Mark Sciortino “Chef Marco” along with a variety of local chefs all sharing their culinary secrets with you. Galbani® will also host the cheese log building contest for kids each day.
Of course, we haven’t forgotten all the favorite things that make our Festa unique. Our Cultural Village, presented by JP Napoli Companies, will feature presentations on local Italian history, the lace makers are back demonstrating the lost art of Italian lace, and the Italian Renaissance Swordsmanship Academy, a local group, will be reenacting medieval sword fights and sharing their experience and knowledge.
When you’re done with all that make sure to go wine tasting in our shaded and relaxing wine garden.
