Ferragosto 2013

http://www.ferragosto.com/

On Arthur Avenue between Crescent and 187th
September 8, 2013 from 12 Noon – 7 PM

- The shuttle runs from 11 am to 7 pm from Arthur Ave and 187th to the Fordham lot entrance on Fordham Road by Crotona Avenue only.

Full History

Going back centuries, the Ferragosto tradition recognizes the end of the harvest season and to enjoy the fruits of those labors.  It is a way for families to engage in part of the Italian culture and coming together in a solid bond of family and friendship. Over 15 years ago, merchants of the Arthur Avenue/Belmont section decided to bring the Italian tradition to the Bronx and engage visitors from the Tri-State area and beyond in Italian culture, traditions, music and of course, the greatest food. The Ferragosto event continues to grow each year with an average of 14-17,000 guests who travel from  near and far to make it part of their family tradition.This year we also celebrate 100 years for Arthur Avenue.  Generations of family-owned businesses continue to thrive and appeal to people from all over with their small-town charm, family atmosphere  and  preservation of Italian culture like no other area around. We hope to see you at Ferragosto in New York’s “real” Little Italy and experience first-hand its old-world charm and tradition of good taste.  It’s the culinary destination for dining, hand-made and imported Italian products and so much more.The Ferragosto celebration includes traditional Italian Street Performances, celebrity guests, great music, kid activities and more, so take a look at more Ferragosto Entertainment information.

    Sheila, sorry you waited so long. If you read my comments below you'll realize that at 12:05 PM the organizer was only at Fordham Rd, subway station and he was asking for directions several times. The walk to Ferragosto point was over 15 minutes.

    Three of us were there on time. Enjoyed the festival on my own after wasting 30 minutes on waiting, calling and texting.

    Got there about 12:08, but didn't see a group congretating on the corner, so my friend & I went off and enjoyed Ferragosto on our own.

    Organizer left me and Kristina behind and run like a maniac to the meetup point because he was late and the distance from Fordham Rd. subway to Arthur Ave was quite a walk.

    Bumped into Meetup wearing shirt guy who turned out to be the organizer at Fordham Rd. subway at 12:05 PM and we were joined by another member 3 blocks down the way. The guy was exasperated and hyper ventilating because he was late for the meetup point. He run like a maniac and left me and the other person behind. He failed to inform us where to meet the group at the, "where we gonna eat" place at the Ferragosto. He was anxious about the group already being there and calling him. I've tried to call him when we lost sight of him and there was no answer. We did the fest visit by ourselves. And thankfully so because the guy was impolite, dumped us and did not seem to care if we caught up with him or the group.
