An event every day that begins at 3:00pm, repeating until August 13, 2017
Come join the fun when Holy Rosary Church on Sixth Street in Historic Downtown Jersey City celebrates 114 years of bringing its community together for lively summer fun.
It’s time once again for La Festa Italiana, an Old World Italian feast that honors the veneration of Maria SS. Dell’Assunta & San Rocco, and offers the Downtown community the opportunity to party with their neighbors. This year’s La Festa Italiana features live bands, fun for the kids, food and souvenir vendors and traditional Italian delicacies made by Holy Rosary Church parishioners like Fresh Hot Zeppoles, Our Famous Rice Balls, and lemony Limoncello.
La Festa Italiana begins Wed, Aug. 9 and continues through Sun, Aug. 13, on Sixth & Brunswick Streets. For those five summer nights, the neighborhood surrounding Holy Rosary Church will come alive with rocking dance music, games of chance, kids’ activities, and delicious Italian food and libations. La Festa Italiana runs 5 pm-11 pm Wednesday-to-Friday, and Saturday & Sunday, 3pm till 11 pm, when the “Super 50/50” Raffle winner is chosen.
