THANK YOU!

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 enthusiasm!

JOIN US!

Gary Galeotti smiles at the crowd!Want to explore your Italian ancestry? Love to play Bocce? Do you wish to be up close and personal with famous chefs? Festa Italiana has just the opportunity for you!

Each year, during the last week of September, our wonderful Festa is celebrated and enjoyed by thousands of people like yourself.

Not surprisingly, hundreds of volunteers work for months to bring this celebration together. Planning this event begins in early in the Spring with dedicated volunteers and event chairs. Our general planning meetings are open to all interested and are entertaining by themselves. Come meet great people with a passion for "All Things Italian"...share a glass of wine and ideas.

Plenty of volunteers are needed in many areas: Have a spare hour? Come cook Italian sausages, help clean tables, work in the souvenir booth or welcome guests to Foto Italiana. Have lots of spare hours? We can find an activity for you to chair!

Every year, we hold general volunteer meetings in August and September. Everyone is invited.
These meetings are held in the school hall at Our Lady of Mt. Virgin Church, 2800 S. Massachusetts St., Seattle, WA 98144.
