Italian Family Festa San JoseThe Italian Family Festa San Jose returns for the 36th time this weekend, Aug 27-28.  One big change is that it will be held at a new location this year, History Park San Jose (near Kelly Park).  Hosted by the Italian American Heritage Foundation, it offers free admission, is open to all and offers food, wine, entertainment, a grape stomp, and more.  There’s bocce ball and “bambino” bocce too!

A few words to know:

Hatfesta = party
mangia = eat
bocce = a sport somewhat like lawn bowling, but played on gravel or a hard surface, not on grass

(Hope to see you there – I’ve never been, but spent a year of college in Florence, Italy, and traveled around that bel paese, so really feel like I’m an adopted daughter of Italia…. )

Sorry, pets not allowed (service animals ok). Please visit the festival’s website to get ALL the details!

It was fun to see the many different regions of Italy represented.  (Although I’m not Italian by heritage, I lived and studied in Florence for a year and feel that I’m something of an adopted daughter of that wonderful country.)

Lace Making

Ioli means lace and there was a demonstration and the chance to give lace making a try at the cultural booth.  Lace was invented in Italy, near Venice (though it’s now best known in Belgium).

Bocce ball – fairly long line to give this age-old sport a try.
