The Italian Festival of Arizona is a two day show celebrating Italian culture, music, food and commerce. Visitors will enjoy authentic Italian cuisine, live music, experience Italian culture and purchase Italian hand crafted items from our vendors. The event opens a window on Italian culture, past and present, through music, arts, food, drinks, and more!


Who will be at Italian Festival 2015?


Be transported to an Italian “piazza” where the celebration begins Friday night with Italian music, wine tasting in the grotto, and delicious Italian bites from local Italian bistros. Stroll along the exhibits while shopping for hand crafted items. Visit the stands of Italian businesses that bring to our valley Italian products and Italian Traditions. Learn how to make handmade pasta and enjoy the different type of Italian Pizzas crafted by the Italian “Pizzaioli” in the pizza cook-off.
