The Festa draws nearly 3,000 people each year

Festa Italiana is being held on Saturday, October 7, 2017 this year. We are currently looking for cooks to provide food for the occasion and those interested in sponsoring this annual event. Of course, Kid Zone will be there for all the smaller Festa attendees.

Entertainment is in the works! It’s guaranteed to be a great time!

Festa Italiana was established in 1999 with events that included Walk for College Cash, ethnic meal, wine tasting and sampling at Camptown Greyhound Park. The goal of the Foundation was to raise enough money to grant each graduating student of Frontenac High School with a $100 scholarship per semester.

Festa Italiana is held at the Raider Sports Complex once each fall. Festa provides a great opportunity for people to celebrate their heritage and show what made southeast Kansas what it is today. Many cooks and major vendors help out each year by providing food, prizes and live music for all. The different foods include traditional Italian, Mediterranean, French, Mexican, American, Greek, Slovenian, Italian-Cajun, Bohemian, German dishes among others.
