For the 91st time the Feast of San Gennaro, a faith-based celebration honoring the Patron Saint of Naples, Italy, takes place in the neighborhood of Manhattan affectionately known as “Little Italy” (Mulberry Street between Canal and Houston Streets; the festival stage is located on the corner of Grand and Mott Streets). It is a much-anticipated event that allows all New Yorkers and visitors to celebrate all things Italian.

The 11-day event runs from Thursday, September 14 through Sunday, September 24, and is expected to attract more than one-million people. Each day there are various events scheduled, from the Grand Procession on Saturday, September 16 which features floats and marching bands (Chazz Palminteri is this year’s Grand Marshal), as well as free music and entertainment nightly.
