August 12-15
Whether you’re Italian or not, this festival is popular for all walks of life. There is a traditional religious processional through the ethnic neighborhood streets following a mass at the church. Crowds are enormous as it seems all of northeast Ohio ascends on this little Italian-American community making it “Big Italy� if only for a few days. There is plenty of music, dancing, artwork, rides, and yes, great food. The area definitely is filled with an “old-world� atmosphere. The four-day celebration draws crowds of more than 100,000 annually. How can that many people be wrong? If you’re looking for old-world charm, culinary delight and beautiful cityscape, this is the place to see.
