Celebrating Houston Italians, Festa Italiana Returns for Its 32nd Year

With about 15 booths made with colorful roofs covering folding tables filled with an array of Italian pastries, foods homemade by Italian club members, and Italian wines, Festa Italiana launched its humble beginning. It was 1978. The wine flowed, Italian music played, and the aroma of Italian food filled the air.

Today, Festa Italiana is one of the largest ethnic festivals in the city – an event that attracts thousands of Houstonians! Growth has been a 32-year dedication to the commitment Houston Italians made to themselves to maintain their cultural heritage, and to their hometown to be active participants in Houston’s development as a major city.

On Saturday, October 13th at 1:30 and Sunday, October 15th at 3:00 we’ll sign up 12 hungry volunteers to test their skills of speed eating to finish a heaping helping of the Festival’s finest pasta and sugo. The Houston Italian Festival will be held on the grounds of the University of St. Thomas. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled weekend!

Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why Casa Palmas Apartments in Pasadena, Texas is urging you to join in the all of the excitement at this event!
