Organizers boast that the festival will have activities for the whole family and, of course, famous Italian food, such as homemade pastas, meatballs, calzones, cannoli and much more.
There will be live musical performances by Prima Vera and The R&R Music School and a shopping section featuring local vendors specializing in jewelry, clothes, crafts and accessories. For kids, there will be plenty of amusement rides, life size bounce houses, and carnival games.
Borrowing a bit of culture from their fellow Europeans to the north, those 21 and over can take part in the Italian Festival’s Oktoberfest-styled beer gardens. Indulge in your favorite beer, or try a sip of a new and unique craft brew.
Visitors can easily access the Congers History Museum located at the train station while at the festival.
This year the Congers Valley Cottage Rotary will celebrate 10 years hosting the Italian Festival and organizers hope this will be their biggest Italian Festival of the decade-long run.
