Celebrating the Greenbush Italian neighborhood, our collection of old photographs, documents and history are displayed in the Culture Tent. Cooking demonstrations, speakers and videos fill the afternoons.
Tasty food is a FESTA highlight. Enjoy our popular pasta dinner, meatball, Italian beef & sausage sandwiches, pizza, gelato, soft pretzels and kettle corn—plus traditional Italian favorites arancini, calamari and sfinge. Be sure to save room for a cannoli or Italian cookies as dessert! Food service begins at 4:30 on Friday and 11:00 on Saturday and Sunday. A variety of beer, wine and soft beverages will also be available.
Children’s activities on Saturday and Sunday afternoons include balloon sculptures, face painting, magic shows and a variety of fun toss games with prizes. Soccer activities both days. Kids can also enjoy Saturday’s Pasta Eating Contest—no hands allowed!
The Bocce competition continues all three days, featuring the Fitchburg City Challenge, firefighters vs. police on Friday evening, and singles and doubles tournaments Saturday and Sunday.
Lots of activities and entertainment included with your gate admission. Children 12 and under free.
