Discover All Things Italian at the One-and-Only Festa Italiana

With about 15 booths made with colorful roofs covering folding tables filled with an array of Italian pastries, foods homemade by Italian club members, and Italian wines, Festa Italiana launched its humble beginning. It was 1978. The wine flowed, Italian music played, and the aroma of Italian food filled the air.

Today, Festa Italiana is one of the largest ethnic festivals in the city – an event that attracts thousands of Houstonians! Growth has been a 32-year dedication to the commitment Houston Italians made to themselves to maintain their cultural heritage, and to their hometown to be active participants in Houston’s development as a major city.

On Saturday, October 13th at 1:30 and Sunday, October 15th at 3:00 we’ll sign up 12 hungry volunteers to test their skills of speed eating to finish a heaping helping of the Festival’s finest pasta and sugo. The Houston Italian Festival will be held on the grounds of the University of St. Thomas. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled weekend!

Although we provide the utmost luxury at Oakbridge Apartment Homes in Pearland, Texas, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
