Full History  

Going back centuries, the Ferragosto tradition recognizes the end of the harvest season and to enjoy the fruits of those labors.  It is a way for families to engage in part of the Italian culture and coming together in a solid bond of family and friendship. Over 15 years ago, merchants of the Arthur Avenue/Belmont section decided to bring the Italian tradition to the Bronx and engage visitors from the Tri-State area and beyond in Italian culture, traditions, music and of course, the greatest food. The Ferragosto event continues to grow each year with an average of 20,000 guests who travel from  near and far to make it part of their family tradition.This year we also celebrate 100 years for Arthur Avenue.  Generations of family-owned businesses continue to thrive and appeal to people from all over with their small-town charm, family atmosphere  and  preservation of Italian culture like no other area around. We hope to see you at Ferragosto in New York’s “Real” Little Italy and experience first-hand its old-world charm and tradition of good taste.  It’s the culinary destination for dining, hand-made and imported Italian products and so much more. The Ferragosto celebration includes traditional Italian Street Performances, celebrity guests, great music, kid activities and more, so take a look at more Ferragosto Entertainment information.
