Fredonia Italian Festival seeks food venders, artisans

Preparations are underway for the second annual Fredonia Italian Festival. The purpose of the Italian Festival is to promote the culture, food, music and heritage of our Italian ancestry.

This year the Italian Festival will take place on Aug. 12, on Church Street, near the gazebo starting at noon.

Organizers are still in need of food vendors, craft masters and artisans who have an Italian theme to their products.

Last year’s event drew a large crowd, and a good time was had by all.

For more information, or if you are interested in being a vendor, call 672-7510 and leave a message. Organizers will get back to you as quickly as possible.
