The Fredonia Italian Heritage Festival celebrates the Italian Heritage that so many of Fredonia’s residents share. Food, music, dancing, local history, and activities – fun for all! The location for the festival is the Fredonia Beaver Club at 64 Prospect Street.

Children’s activities will include crafts, Italian stories, bingo, interactive exhibits and much more. Meet Mario and Luigi from Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers.

Visit our local food and wine vendors including Merritt Estate’s Slush Bus! Plan to visit some of our on-site restaurants: Fred’s; Don Bennice Italian sausage; Rural Ministry spaghetti, meatballs, and cannoli; Whiz Whip; and Tony’s Gelato.

Afternoon and evening activities include craft and Italian themed vendors, lots of music and Italian Heritage panel discussion and interactive cultural display.

Grab a festival apron, T-shirt, or other Italian themed merchandise and Basket Raffle tickets from our Festivals Fredonia tent!
