At Tallahassee Italian Family Festa, held each year since 2010, Italian and Italian-American culture is celebrated in all of its forms. Bocce tournaments, a Madonnari sidewalk-chalk art competition, and a silent auction are just a few attractions, and spectators can fuel up with gelato, meatball sandwiches, and Italian beer and wine. Italian cars and motorcycles gleam in an exhibition, showing off their sleek surfaces and revving their motors with an Italian trill. There's also a children's area where kids can participate in face painting, a grape stomp, and other activities.
Proceeds from the festival benefit Florida State University's international travel programs and CIAO! Italian Club Tallahassee.
