Four days of food, wine, cocktails, bocce ball, and live entertainment. Months upon months of planning, securing, scheduling, ordering and promoting. Years upon years, 17 to be exact, of culture, heritage and tradition.
This year’s 17th Annual Festa Italiana (i.e. the Italian Food & Wine Festival) opened with the Wines of Italy tasting event and concluded with the main Festa Italiana event in Centennial Park. Over 20,000 attendees flooded the historic Ybor City district in celebration of Italian culture, the Italian community and of course, wine and pasta!
