Festa Italiana is an ethnic festival held annually at the
Henry Maier Festival Park in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is the largest
Italian-American festival in America and features Italian music, food and entertainment. Sponsored by the
Italian Community Center, the festival is also known for its large fireworks and pyrotechnics shows put on by Bartolotta Fireworks.
Festa Italiana is also held at Boylan Catholic High school every year with rides and bands every year in Rockford Illinois.
The event, along with
Summerfest and the many ethnic and cultural festivals held throughout the city, is what gives Milwaukee the nickname "City of Festivals."
