The 23rd Festa Italiano has started it’s weekend of food and fun in Poughkeepsie at the historic Italian Center.

Ten of thousands will come to the Italian festival in Poughkeepsie this weekend and if you’re like me you are coming for the food. You can choose from favorites like Chicken Parm, Eggplant rollatini,sausage and peppers and some of the best meatballs you will ever taste.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that the four day party in the heart of the city is more than just food. That’s cool, you enjoy the entertainment. I’ll be over by the cannolis.

Along with musical entertainment acts and performances, attendees can partake in raffles, card games and gaming wheels.

The Italian Center is located at 227 Mill Street in Poughkeepsie, but it won’t be hard to find the festival. Big white tents are set up in the parking lot of the center and under those tents you will find most of the food and beverages. Don’t cook and stop by the Italian Center this weekend for some tasty family fun.
