Feast of San Gennaro

September 11 – September 24, 2014

Little Italy

Manhattan, NY


NYCGO Logo Now in its 88th year, 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 even pizza- and cannoli-eating contests.) Aside from the edibles—for which you'll want to bring some cash—guests can enjoy free activities, book signings and musical performances that take place on a stage located at Grand and Mott Streets.
