Proceeds from the festival will support local and national non-profit charitable organizations supported by the Italian-American Civic League of Utah.

Salt Lake is home to many incredible street festivals. After visiting Italian festivals in some of the great cities across the country, our organization wanted to bring Italian culture, food and entertainment to the mix. It is our goal to give a little taste of what we know as Italian-Americans to anyone who attends the festival. We hope to see you there!



Fun for the entire family!
