This Italian Festival celebrates the Italian Heritage that so many of Fredonia’s residents share. Food, music, dancing, local history, and activities – fun for all!

Festival Italia WILL be virtual on Saturday, June 27th. Even though we won’t be in person, we will deliver the best possible festival we can virtually. You will be able to view Virtual Festival Italia on Fredonia Cable channel 1301 or at www.fredoniacableaccess.com or on our Festivals Fredonia Facebook page. Also, the replay will be able to be found on our website at festivalsfredoniany.org.
