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, attracting thousands of 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 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!
