The Houston Italian Festival is the premiere event in Texas for all things Italian, founded with the mission of celebrating Italian culture and heritage while sharing it with people of all backgrounds and walks of life. It is a weekend that celebrates the diversity of Houston and Texas as a whole, where people are connected by a love for Italian food, culture, and maybe a few glasses of wine. Festa Italiana takes place every October and features authentic Italian food, wine, and sweets, live entertainment and performances, and activities for all ages, such as language classes, cooking classes and demonstrations, pasta eating contests, the grape stomp, a bocce ball tournament, classic car show, interactive sidewalk art, film screenings, and more.
In 2018, the festival will celebrate 40 years in the city of Houston, and will be held on the grounds of the University of St. Thomas from Thursday, October 11 to Sunday, October 14, 2018.
Proceeds from the Houston Italian Festival benefit several local non-profits including the Italian Cultural & Community Center (which provides numerous educational programs, scholarship and events throughout the year for all Houstonians to enjoy).
