10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Throughout Little Italy. Free. www.sicilianfesta.com

The Sicilian Festival turns 20 this year, and to celebrate, there will be a performance by Sicilian American tenors Aaron Caruso, Elio Scaccio and Sam Vitale. You'll also be able to experience everything from grape-stomping and folk dancing to opera music and even a pasta-eating contest. Just make sure to be there by noon, when a procession of costumed dancers, musicians and residents marches through Little Italy. The family-friendly event also features a children's area with face-painting and puppet shows, cooking demonstrations and a Bellissimo Car Show showing off Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Fiats and more.
