La Festa Italiana

Courthouse Square | Downtown Scranton


Mangia! One of Lackawanna County’s most delicious traditions is La Festa Italiana, held annually on Labor Day Weekend. The four-day celebration of culture, cuisine, and music brings together people of all ethnic backgrounds from near and far. “La Festa”, as the locals call it, attracts over 100,000 people annually to Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton.


The fun doesn't stop at La Festa! Be sure to check out Railfest at Steamtown National Historic Site. Shuttle transportation will be provided between the two events. Don't leave so soon, stay in one of our hotels and explore some of our most popular attractions!
