Italian Festivals 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.

After the Noon Mass on June 11, there will be a procession through the streets with the statue of St. Anthony accompanied with music by the Metropolitan Festival Band. The 100-year-old statue, beautifully refurbished last year after languishing in storage since the current church was built, was part of the parish when it was founded in 1907.
