Annual Italian street festival La Festa will take place all day next Sunday, June 2. The free all-ages festival got its start in 2010 with the aim of honouring Festa della Repubblica (Italian National Day), and replicating the festivities that take place in Italy on the holiday each year. This year, La Festa will take place on East Passyunk Avenue between Broad and Moore streets in South Philadelphia from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

According to the festival’s organizers, the event’s footprint this year is nearly double what it’s been in years prior, allowing for more festivities than ever before. “La Festa ... is back bigger and better than ever,” La Festa Director Saverio Nestico said in a recent press release. “We [will] present even more music, more food, more shopping and more family fun.”
