It’s a feast and festival unlike any other, an event that’s been going on for decades at Our Lady of Grace Church in Johnston. And it will be back beginning next Thursday, Sept. 9, and continuing through Sunday, Sept. 12. Countless people will tell you it’s considered one of Rhode Island’s best end-of-summer events, especially when it comes top home cooked Italian foods, Don DePetrillo’s delicious doughboys, family fun and those always popular carnival rides and games of chance.

The Feast and Festival at the Roman Catholic Church is held each year in honor of La Madonna della DiFesa. This year’s event will also serve as a terrific tribute to two of Our Lady of Grace’s most cherished parishioners. “Our 101st feast is an exciting time for our parish, especially after such a tumultuous time over the past year,” said the Rev. Pete J. Gower, the church’s pastor.
