We will update the festival page later this summer as we confirm acts and vendors. Scroll down to see why this festival is the most popular celebration of Italian heritage in central New Jersey!
There will be Live Music, Face Painting and Balloon Twisting and of course the Petting Zoo. The Spaghetti Eating Contest, a crowd favorite, will be back as well. New to the Italian Festival will be the Spring Lake School of Dance performing Italian folk dances – a tremendous draw for families and friends. Not new, but always a draw, is the festival Art Walk that will take place along Third Avenue. There will be music on Third too! See what happened last year by scrolling down below.
