Italian American Festival

Sunday October 9, 2016 ~ 11am-7pm

Kingston's Historic Rondout Waterfront

The Ulster County Italian American Foundation is presenting the 9th Annual Italian Festival on the Kingston Waterfront Sunday October 9th, 2016 from 11am until 7pm.  

Please join us at this free Festival for a large variety of Italian foods, beverages, products, music and family fun!

Benvenuti a tutti. Welcome all.

“Italianita’, roughly translated as Italian-ness, refers to a way of seeing and feeling that comes from the shared history and experience of our people, no matter where they live or how many generations separate them form the motherland. It is the responsibility of Italian American leaders to sustain that way of seeing, of experiencing life and of respecting our unique heritage. The Foundation brings that set of values to Ulster County and its citizens with passion and intelligence, serving to extend the  long arm of cultural diplomacy to upstate New York. We salute the Founders and Friends of this valuable enterprise.”

Comm. Stefano Acunto
