Federal Hill Stroll
The Annual Federal Hill Stroll will take place on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013. The perfect event to enjoy samplings of signature cuisine from an array of restaurants and receive discounts from various vendors.
The Feast of St. Joseph
St. Joseph’s Day is a big Feast for Italians because in the Middle Ages, God, through St. Joseph’s intercessions, saved the Sicilians from a very serious drought. So in his honor, the custom is for all to wear red, in the same way that green is worn on St. Patrick’s Day. All the bakeries on Historic Federal Hill baked the most luscious and decedent, Italian delicacy called Zeppole that is a celebration in itself.
Columbus Day Festival
Save the date for this year’s spectacular three- day Columbus Day Festival to be held on Columbus Day weekend October 12th-14th, 2013. Listen to live entertainment in various locations along the avenue while tasting some of the most wonderful ethnic food from the award-winning restaurants located on Federal Hill and respected vendors from neighboring towns. The parade, which is always held on Sunday, is a must for all ages along with fun games and rides for the children. This is a festival not to be missed!
