It is with a great
deal of pride that we at Festa Italiana,
now in our 27th year, point out that what
we celebrate boils down to certain
fundamentals: God, family, community and a
love of our country mixed with nostalgia
for "the old country" that was home to our
ancestors. We also have the good fortune
to share a cultural heritage that
emphasizes "family" gathered at home
sharing good food together.
With that in mind,
once again, we'd like to thank our
volunteers. Festa Italiana is a completely
volunteer - driven, 501(c)
(not-for-profit) organization and a
festival of this magnitude can only be
produced by community support and
financial generosity. Whether your
contribution is donating your time or some
badly needed cash, it is a vital building
block of Festa Italiana Seattle, so THANK
YOU for your donations and your
Would you like to make a donation to Festa?
