Italian American Heritage Family Festa schedule.

In 1977, the Italian American Heritage Family Festa became the first ethnic festival to be held in downtown San Jose. This year the Festa moves to its new home in Guadalupe River Park to better accommodate the 25,000 attendees.

Brush up on your Italiano with grape stomping contests, a cheese rolling contest, a salami toss game, expanded bocce ball games and exhibitions, ballroom dancing, a Sunday night Tarantella dance contest, a costume contest, pizza toss demonstrations, Italian card game playing and instruction, the Historic Italian Photo Exhibition, the Christian Cross exhibition, and a Sunday morning Mass.
