Ferragosto is a tradition that is celebrated at 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 20,000 guests who travel from near and far to make it part of their family tradition. This year they also celebrate 100 years for Arthur Avenue. Ferragosto takes you to New York’s “Real” Little Italy and one can experience first-hand the 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. Free!
