Food, Music and Good Times – With An Italian Twist

Since 1976, the city and the good people of Scranton have hosted La Festa Italiana, a Labor Day Weekend celebration of the region’s rich Italian heritage. It is estimated that over 150,000 people visit the festival over the first weekend in September.They come, first and foremost, for the food.

Over 80 vendors are on hand dishing out everything from pizza and pasta to cappuccinos and cannoli. Even classic NEPA favorites like barbecue, kielbasa and pierogis are well represented. There are also arts and crafts vendors, as well as kid-friendly booths and bounce and play areas.And they stay for the music.

The festival features multiple stages around Courthouse Square. Over the weekend, dozens of local, regional and national acts will perform. You’ll hear it all from old Italian classics to Sinatra, Martin and Francis. There will also be local rock and pop bands, comedians and incredible stage shows.But the festival is truly all about good times.

Whether you’re meeting up with old friends or making new ones, La Festa Italiana is the perfect way to bring summer to a close. We suggest showing up early, staying late and bringing your appetite.
