The 8th Annual Festa Italiana Charlotte is on! Once again presenting Charlotte with the very best Italian foods, wines and entertainment in its annual Sunday afternoon festival, The Festa Italiana shares some of “la bella vita” with us all for the benefit of charity.
Join Chris as he asks as a host for the Good Eats and Meets group. We will have our own table for the group. Look for him. I hate it, but I will be away on business and will miss the festivities.
The Festa takes place this year on May 19, 2013 in the beautiful setting of Queen’s University of Charlotte. Guest chefs from Italy, appetizers and drinks from Charlotte’s best Italian restaurants, chefs and purveyors, and live musical entertainment combine with family-friendly activities such as BYOB (means “Bring Your Own Bocce” in Italian) and a kid zone. Not to be missed: our elegant silent auction and art show! The Festa Italiana has become an Italian food and wine destination where guests will sample Italian foods and wines well-established and new to Charlotte.
Fine restaurants such as Blue, Osso, Vivace and Fiamma have jumped in, contributing their best appetizers and fine food ingredients to share; local businesses like The Coffee Boss and Pasta and Provisions have generously provided espressos and cappuccinos and ingredients for the cannoli; Brooklyn South Pizzeria bakes their delicious pizza on-site; Peroni supplies the beer; and many more businesses and individuals contribute their time, resources and talent to make the Festa a fun, fabulous afternoon celebrating great food and wine!
