FESTIVAL | Little Italy Festival 

If you can't afford to walk the streets of Rome, Florence, or Milan, you might be able to find what you're looking for in Rochester this weekend at the Fourth Annual Little Italy Festival: two days of Italian food, music, and entertainment. The festival begins Saturday, August 12, and will feature the musical talents of Rome native Marco Amadio, Sicily native Franco Ciffa, the Rochester Rat Pack, New York City's Tre Bella, and Sal Valentinetti, a 2016 finalist on "America's Got Talent." While music is a large focus of the schedule, the festival will also include cooking demonstrations by Chef Marco; a spaghetti eating contest; a grand procession; and an awards ceremony. The festival will end on Sunday with a fireworks show following Valentinetti's performance.

Rochester's Little Italy Festival will be held at the Riverside Festival Site (179 Exchange Boulevard) on Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tickets are $8 for advanced general admission and $10 for general admission at the door, free to children under 12 and veterans with military ID. General two-day admission tickets are $15 and can only be bought online. For more information, visit littleitalyfest.com.
