Festa Italiana Returns to Milwaukee’s Lakefront
Festa Italiana, the area’s largest Italian Festival, is coming to Milwaukee’s Summerfest grounds July 22-24.
This year’s festival will feature the usual mix of Italian food, beer and music, with a number of new highlights. An Italian piazza, or city square, will be on the north end of the grounds featuring Italian art, history, cinema, religious artifacts and a vintage photo exhibit.
Live entertainment will include a headlining performance from 16-year-old classical singer and “America’s Got Talent” runner-up Jackie Evancho. Other performers include Will & Anthony, Sicilian Tenors and Bronx Wanderers.
Festa will also host the Vince Lombardi Walk/Run to Tackle Cancer on Saturday, July 23. Runners and walkers get free admission into the festival.
