DelGrosso Park's "Italian Food and Heritage Festival"
Sunday September 21st, 2014 - See You There!

The "Italian Food and Heritage Festival" at DelGrosso Amusement Park is a full day of great food, music, and Italian heritage celebration. Families throughout the Allegheny Mountains look forward to this one day celebration to enjoy a day of their favorite Italian food and heritage traditions.

Every September, one Sunday is set aside at this PA Amusement Park for the many Central Pennsylvania clubs and organizations to show off their specialties. It is well known as one of the famous Annual PA Italian Heritage Festivals in the Pennsylvania.

This annual event is one of the few PA Festivals and Annual Events celebrating the Italian Heritage though the Allegheny Mountains.

The variety of Italian food is endless. Which makes it difficult to choose what to sample next. One thing I can promise you, everything is fresh, homemade and delicious.

Unless you live near a Little Italy you would never be able to enjoy so much homemade Italian Food and authentic Italian Music in one area, in one day.

From Italian Wedding Soup
To Italian Pasta, Bread and Pasteries

With so much Italian food to choose from you will find yourself grateful for the take out boxes at this annual PA Italian Food and Heritage Festival.

I usually start with the homemade Italian Wedding Soup or maybe a nice hot bowl of Pasta Fagioli (macaroni and beans). From there I move on to the pasta, salad, and bread. If the pasta seems a bit too filling you can always get a hot or sweet Italian Sausage or Meatball Sandwich. The menu is endless. But I'm warning you, come early, the favorite Italian dishes tend to sell out early.

The Italian Pastries are homemade by the many women that are members of the PA Italian Heritage Clubs and organizations.

Knowing that most of the people will be way too well fed to want a dessert they prepackage the Italian pastries to take along home. You'll even find a booth loaded with specialty Italian bread from Pacifio Bakery located in Altoona, PA. After all, what's an Italian Heritage Festival without fresh authentic Italian bread?
