Enjoy non-stop free entertainment all weekend long while chowing down on a large array of homemade Italian fare in front of the Main Stage at the 39th Annual Italian Festival at St Coleman’s Catholic Church in Pompano Beach, taking place Friday February 17th through Sunday February 19th, 2023. It all started with a spaghetti dinner and pony rides in 1984. It didn’t take long before the Italian Festival became an annual tradition that so many children and adults alike look forward to enjoying year after year. Initially, the festival raised funds to convert the original Church into a Parish Hall. Since then, it has expanded into one of the largest fundraisers for St Coleman’s elementary school and parish.
At St Coleman’s Italian Festival, you’ll discover wonderful Italian food, fabulous fair rides, games of chance, arts & crafts, and top entertainment from local bands, some as young as teens and others who have been on the music scene for decades. This year’s schedule features 3 days of non-stop entertainment and brings back many of the favorite performers from previous years as well as new acts.
This year’s festival will include children’s games, carnival rides, live music, a silent auction, as well as a JEEP raffle prize!
