Buon Ferragosto! The Italian ‘Celebration Of Rest’ Happens In Little Italy August 15th

Every year, the Little Italy Association celebrates the traditional summer Italian holiday “Feriae Augusti”. Celebrated on August 15, Ferragosto is a national Italian holiday with roots in Roman Catholic tradition with festivities intended to be a period of rest after months of hard work. While we may be celebrating a little differently this year, we can all agree that we could all use a little fun!

More than just a celebration, Ferragosto brings together the community to recognize the progressive and innovative work they have done. Good things happen when people collectively come together, and Little Italy’s success has a lot to do with just that.

Little Italy’s Biggest Party, Ferragosto, Holds Final Event After A Decade With “Pirates Invade Sicily” Theme

Put on your favorite summer outfit and join Little Italy in keeping the celebration of Ferragosto alive with a feast that reflects the simplicity of summer cuisine full of fresh vegetables, seafood, meats, and cheeses.

Begin with Short Rib Carpaccio from Barbusa made with shallots and caciocavallo or a Pomadoro Salad loaded with fresh tomatoes, olives, cucumber, and onion from Civico 1845.

Enjoy fresh oysters and ceviche from Ironside Fish & Oyster or indulge in the show-stopping Cheese Wheel Pasta from Bencotto tossed in Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with an Italian soda or an affogato made with artisan gelato from Solunto.

Buon Ferragosto!

See you there…..and stay healthy, San Diego!
