Take part in an annual celebration now in its 21st year, the Annual Sicilian Festival in Little Italy. The smell of home-cooked Sicilian favorites will waft through the air as you stroll along, enticing you to vendor booths to sample the savory flavors straight from The Boot. Try all the signature dishes from fresh pastas to rich marinara sauces and meaty gravies. While the festival food will make your mouth water, the entertainment gives you lots to look at while you wander around in San Diego’s Little Italy. Check out the colorful costumes as flags fly and attendees march along in the annual parade, and enjoy a full entertainment lineup that includes live music and other festive flavors of the Sicilian region.
With free admission, this is the perfect family-friendly event for the little ones. Free children’s rides and entertainment makes the festival fun for all ages. The Little Italy Festa attracts thousands of attendees each year, visitors and San Diego locals alike who want to take part in a tradition started in 1993. Discover the food, music, art, and tradition of the city’s Sicilian immigrants at this spectacular street festival that started through the vision of Porticello, Sicily native Mario Cefalu, owner of Solunto’s Bakery in Little Italy. Come hungry, as today Solunto’s Bakery and Deli is a destination dining spot on India Street. Try the pastries and breads for a foodie experience that will leave your taste buds tingling for more. Treat your taste buds to glorious goodies like handmade cannoli and chocolate chip biscotti, just to name two of the famous finger foods.
