2019 Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy, NYC

September 12 – 22, 2019

The festivities are held along Mulberry Street from Canal to Houston Streets, as well as on Hester and Grand Streets between Mott and Baxter Streets.

This festival has always been a favorite of yours truly as well as of so many other New Yorkers.

Annual Feast of San Gennaro, Food, games, rides, concessions, entertainment, parade, and religious procession at this well-loved festival in Little Italy. Indoor and outdoor dining at 35 of Little Italy’s most famous Italian restaurants. More than 300 licensed street vendors selling international foods, and souvenirs.

The street festivities – including parades, entertainment, food stands and a cannoli-eating contest – are capped on with a celebratory Mass and candlelit procession as the Statue of the Saint is carried from its permanent home in Most Precious Blood Church on Mulberry Street.

BTW, if you’re a merchant interested in participating at the festival then have a look at Mort & Ray’s website to learn about applications, costs and such.
