Ferragosto 2023

The Belmont Business Improvement District is thrilled to welcome everyone back to the neighborhood for Ferragosto 2023 on Sunday, September 10th! Ferragosto is a special day in the community filled with Italian culture, delicious food, wonderful live entertainment, and great fun. Ferragosto is a way to convene our customers and supporters in a festival-like atmosphere and share what we have to offer as a historic and culinary center that remains an authentic Little Italy.

The Ferragosto Festival takes place on Arthur Avenue between East 187th Street and Crescent Avenue in The Bronx, NY. The stage is located on East 186th Street between Arthur Avenue and Hughes Avenue. The event occurs annually, on the Sunday after Labor Day, from 12pm-6pm rain or shine.

Visit Bronx Little Italy to learn more about our neighborhood, our small businesses, and other events throughout the year. Visitors from the tri-state area and beyond can’t get enough of dining at our world-class restaurants, and shopping at our artisan food shops and specialty stores that carry superb local and imported items.

Ferragosto in Bronx Little Italy

Going back centuries, the Ferragosto tradition recognizes the end of the harvest season and enjoying the fruits of those labors. Over 25 years ago, the merchants of Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street decided to bring the Italian celebration 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 Festival continues to grow each year, attracting thousands of guests who travel from near and far to make it part of their own family tradition.

Bronx Little Italy is home to numerous family-owned small 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!
