Come join in the fun of Newport Festa Italiana’s 29th annual Festival in the Park. Be a Vendor! This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2023 from 11:00am to 5:00pm in Touro Park on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, R.I. The event features continuous live music, singing, dancing, great food, activities for children, and vendors from Newport and beyond.
Enjoy the sounds of the Italian folk band Calabria Bella as well as the talented young singer Jake Kambo. Play bocce in the park. Eat Doughboys! Share in the community camaraderie. There’s something for everyone!
Adding to the excitement, our Festival in the Park event coincides with the Audrain Car Museum’s “Concours & Motor Week” which draws thousands of people to Newport and takes place on Bellevue Avenue near Touro Park. Pedestrian traffic will be heavy.
We hope that you will consider participating as a vendor or by contributing a promotional sign in support of this year’s event. All proceeds from this event help to support activities that showcase Italian and Italian-American heritage and culture. Families of all nationalities are welcome.
Thank you for your consideration. We hope to see you there!
