Embrace your inner Italian at Monterey's Festa Italia! This weekend, Monterey transforms into a mecca for all things marinara as this Italian Festival takes over Custom House Plaza, Monterey State Historic Park in downtown Monterey.

Celebrate Monterey's important Italian roots with art, raffles, wine, beer, music and, of course, food! You won't be able to resist Italian favorites like calamari, pizza, pasta, paninis and rice balls. There will also be a parade, dancing and a bocce tournament.
