BENVENUTI ALLA FESTA ITALIANA 2017
WELCOME TO FESTA ITALIANA 2017
Thirty-nine years ago, two men, Noe (Whitey) Marinelli and Bob (Corky) Corirossi had an inspiration, a festival that would join the Italian community in Rockford one weekend a year. One big family reunion!
With the help of over 100 chair people, countless volunteers, Festa Italiana is now the second largest festival in Rockford. For one very special weekend each year, everyone who passes through our gates is an “Honorary Italian.”
Festa Italiana is a subcommittee of GRIAA (Greater Rockford Italian American Association) and the largest contributor to GRIAA’s scholarship fund. GRIAA’s scholarship fund helps our Italian descendant’s with tuition in our parochial schools. To date, GRIAA has awarded nearly $700,000 in scholarships!
As your executive committee for Festa Italiana 2017 we would like to invite you to browse our website. Use the site menu to check out Amici Italiani Adult & Youth Dance Troupe, our Italian culture, event times, wonderful pictures and the many other programs GRIAA supports.
All of us look forward to seeing you on the grounds of Boylan Catholic High School, August 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th!
