Welcome to the website for Festa Italiana SLC! The second annual Festa Italiana SLC was held in 2016. Over 16,000 people enjoyed the surroundings of beautiful downtown Salt Lake City, while exploring the culture, entertainment, and culinary diversity of Italy.

Festa Italiana SLC is Salt Lake City’s own Italian Street Festival where you can experience the tastes, sounds, and culture of Italy. Through our unique offering of 15 authentic Italian Restaurants from around the Salt Lake Valley and wine hand-selected from Italy patrons can experience the Italian culinary experience all while being entertained by the art and music of Italy. Live music is on tap both days at the festival culminating with our headlining bands. In years past the people of Salt Lake City have been treated to Ricci Martin (son of Dean Martin), Marco Calliari Band from Montreal, Canada, and in 2017 Etnosound from Calabria, Italy.

Festa Italiana SLC is a non-profit, Italian Festival in Salt Lake City sponsored by Alfa Romeo put on by 501(c)3 organizations the Italian American Civic League and Italian Club of Salt Lake. Proceeds from the festival will support local and national non-profit charitable organizations supported by the Italian-American Civic League of Utah. This year proceeds will be contributed to Catholic Community Services to support their homeless and refugee outreach services. More information can be found here http://www.festaitalianaslc.com
