New York’s City’s largest festival, The Feast of San Gennaro, begins this Thursday, September 13th and runs for 11 days until September 23rd, 2018. This year marks the festival’s 92nd anniversary since it began in 1926, when groups of Italian immigrants settled in what is now known as New York City’s “Little Italy.” 

The New York City festival, an 11-day salute to the patron saint of Naples, is run by Figli di San Gennaro (Children of San Gennaro), a non-profit organization devoted to preserving the spirit and faith of the early Italian community. More than one-million people from around the world flock to the Feast of San Gennaro to participate in the parades, religious processions, musical performances — and, of course, to chow down on the variety of Italian foods offered.
