Ferragosto 2019 was truly wonderful! The entire neighborhood was thrilled to welcome 30,000 attendees to our annual Festival. We’re already looking forward to next years event! It’s a day filled with Italian culture, fantastically delicious food, and wonderful entertainment. You’ll experience the neighborhood’s old-world charm, and savor some of the City’s best pizza, pasta, mozzarella, cannoli, and more!

In the meantime, visit Bronx Little Italy to learn more about the neighborhood and our other events throughout the year. Of course you’re always welcome to the neighborhood to enjoy our world-class restaurants, and shop at our artisan food shops and specialty stores that carry superb handmade local and imported items.


Going back centuries, the Ferragosto tradition recognizes the end of the harvest season and enjoying the fruits of those labors.  Over 20 years ago, the merchants of  Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street decided to bring the Italian tradition to the Bronx, and engage visitors in Italian culture, traditions,  musical and theatrical entertainment, and of course, the most delicious food. Since then, the Ferragosto event continues to grow each year averaging over 20,000 guests who travel from near and far to make it part of their own family tradition.

The “Real” Little Italy in the Bronx is home to dozens of family-owned businesses, many of which are owned and operated by the same families that founded them nearly a century ago. Visitors enjoy the neighborhood’s small-town charm, authenticity,  and  preservation of Italian culture.

We hope to see you at Ferragosto where you can experience first-hand the neighborhood’s old-world charm and tradition of good-taste!

    Being Born in the Bronx and living there the 1st 10 years of my young childhood(650e.182nd st )(ph We3-2713) .Ever time go back to do some Food shopping it brings back fond memories. I reminisce about Uncles, Aunts ,friends of the families and I still remember my friends. Gone are the days when you would eat fresh food bought by my mom that day. That is why I pay homage to little Italy in the Bronx— Farragousta

    There is an “Arthur” Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio, also. My Papa lived there when he came from Italy. It seems to have been where all the Italians gathered to be near each other. We celebrate the Feast of the Assumption on August 15 in our Little Italy.
