Feast and Festivities: At the Feast Of San Gennaro Festival

Immerse yourself in the liveliness of Italy! With the 92nd Feast Of San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy.

Take in the amazing food and entertainment, from now until Sunday, September 23rd. From 11:30 AM to 11PM Sundays to Thursdays, and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

 

“The beloved Feast of San Gennaro is an annual celebration of the Patron Saint of Naples. The first Feast in New York City took place on September 19, 1926 when newly arrived immigrants from Naples settled along Mulberry Street in the Little Italy section of New York City and decided to continue the tradition they had followed in Italy to celebrate the day in 305 A.D. when Saint Gennaro was martyred for the faith.

Since then, the Feast has grown from a one day street festival to a gala 11-day event”
