Festival music includes Italian, Italian American and guest artists, performing standards like Volare and That's Amore alternating with tenors singing Nessun Dorma and O Sole Mio interspersed with Italian folk music, rock bands and accordion players.

There will also be:
  • Wine tasting and grape stomping
  • Children's crafts
  • The Great Gravy-Sauce Competition
  • Celebrity cooking demonstrations
  • Bocce
  • Bingo
  • Carnival
  • Great Italian Food
Saturday at noon the San Gennaro Procession around the block will be followed by Mass on the Main Stage. The event seemed much more of a community event when the service was held at Christ the King Church and the saint was carried up Vine Street, but it's about twice the distance to this location so around the block will have to do. Everyone is welcome to join in or watch the procession.
