Feast of San Gennaro

Observing its 90th anniversary in 2016, Little Italy’s Feast of San Gennaro salutes the patron saint of Naples with celebrations during the festival’s 11-day run. One highlight of the traditional Italian-American street fair is the food located along Mulberry Street: cannoli, fried dough, torrone (a honey nougat candy usually flecked with almonds) and, of course, sausage-and-pepper sandwiches. (There are also pizza- and cannoli-eating contests.) Aside from the edibles—for which you’ll want to bring some cash—guests can enjoy live music, cooking demonstrations and the focus of the event: a customary procession of the statue of San Gennaro on September 19.
