8640 Dixson St., Kansas City
Eat, drink, and be Italian at the lively Festa Italiana, an annual celebration of Italian culture held during the first weekend in June. The smell of garlicky chicken spiedini and other Italian delicacies fills the streets of Zona Rosa during the weekend-long festival.
Browse arts and crafts booths and cultural exhibits and enjoy live performances, cooking demonstrations, and evening fireworks displays.
After more than three decades in Kansas City, Festa Italiana unofficially kicks off the city’s summer festival season and is worth a trip to the Northland—your taste buds will thank you!
