Now in its 40th year, the San Gennaro Feast is the biggest Italian food and music festival in Las Vegas. The festival, held bi-annually in Las Vegas, NV is one of the most popular festivals for locals and visitors from all over the world.
The San Gennaro Feast comes back to town September 11th- 15th, this year’s location is behind Ikea at I-215 and Durnago. The festival features a wide variety of ethnic food vendors, arts and crafts, home exhibits, pony rides & petting zoo, face painters, live international acts hourly on the main concert stage, plus amusement rides and games fun for the whole family!
I’ve been to this feast many times over the years and it’s your traditional fair atmosphere. So much good food, it’s hard to choose what to eat, and then you must leave room for desserts. Classics like cheese on a stick, deep fried oreos and food from many ethnicities and cultures. Expect a crowd, as we don’t have too many fairs and festivals throughout the year here in Vegas. If you go during off hours it should be less crowded, typical Friday and Saturday nights and daytime on the weekend are usually busy.
General admission to the Feast is FREE for children under 54″, and $10 for adults. Ride tickets are $1.25 per ticket or $20 for a book of 20. Ultimate ride wristbands are $25 for Wednesday & Thursday and $35 or Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Opening night ONLY special- a FREE parent wristband with the purchase of a child’s POP unlimited rides wristband, a $25 value!
