The top 2019 NJ Italian Festivals -
Promoting Italian culture,  and family unity

NJ Italian Festivals

Italian Feasts typically run for three to four days around a summer weekend and in addition to promoting the Italian culture and family unity, they raise money to support many worthwhile charitable causes.

Italian festivals or feasts are usually organized by either a Catholic church with a large Catholic following or an Italian community service organization with an interest in promoting their culture and providing knowledge and stories for future generations to benefit from.
