Festa Italiana, an Italian cultural festival in the central Honolulu neighborhood of Kakaako that launched in 2017, returns this fall.
The nonprofit Friends of Italy Society of Hawaii will host the second installment of the one-day street festival Oct. 6. The event includes Italian cuisine, music, art, live entertainment, street performers and more. The lineup includes both local and Italian chefs.
New this year, Festa Italiana has partnered with Blue Note Hawaii for "One Night in Napoli," a show featuring local band Mango Season with Italian Pop Artist and Comedian Enrico Rennella on Oct. 2.
