The Little Italy Association presents the largest Italian festival on the West Coast, celebrating Italian food, culture, and entertainment. Food will include restaurants and vendor booths, as well as tastes from the festival’s “Italian Table” stage featuring local chefs, and the return of the popular “Pizza Tossing Contest”. Three stages of musical entertainment will play an array of Italian and eclectic music, and for those 21 and up, a beer and wine garden featuring Italian and local brews. The “Gesso Italiano” area brings more than 160 artists together to create works of art using chalk as their medium and the city streets as their canvas.
