Ciao!

We’re thrilled to announce that the 6th Annual Washington Italian Festival, presented by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania Sons & Daughters of Italy, Primo Italiano Lodge 2800, will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 12pm-8pm at the Community Pavilion on Main Street, Downtown Washington, PA. The festival’s mission is not only to celebrate Italian heritage through music, food, and community but to ensure the tradition of such social and cultural events continue, which bring vibrancy and a sense of belonging to our community.

The festival will kick-off with a Spaghetti Dinner on Friday, September 23, 2022 beginning at 5:30pm. Entertainment by Shades of Time will be on stage from 6:30pm-8:30pm on Friday evening. On Saturday the 24th you’ll recognize some of your favorite acts such as traditional folk dances from Allegro Dance Company and musical performances throughout the day including the incredible Washington Jazz Orchestra. Are you a foodie? Enjoy a cooking demonstration by Will Crowe of the Kitchen Ronin, a cooking competition led by Nate Mass from the Wash PA Food Group and an opportunity to share your favorite Italian recipes as we create our WashPaFestA Italian Cookbook. Representatives from the Italian Heritage project at Citizens Library will share information about Italian traditions and oral histories. Throughout the day, attendees can shop, enjoy Italian music, and savor their favorite Italian dishes. Adult beverages will be available from The Washington Winery, J&D Cellars, Red Pump Spirits, Liberty Pole Spirits, Red Fox Winery and BDI.

This year we are thrilled to bring more family activities to the festival with your financial support. Family activities to include face painting, balloon creations by the talented Jessica Garda of The Cheerful Balloon, Meet and Greet with Pinocchio and Geppetto along with Italian storytelling.

Several opportunities are available to help us reach our goals and make this a festival to remember. We appreciate your generosity in supporting this event and look forward to your attendance at the Washington Italian Festival on Saturday, September 24, 12pm-8pm, with a kick-off event Friday, September 24, 5:30-8:30 pm.
