If you have a bocce team, please join us to play in our tournaments. Prizes will include gift certificates to local restaurants. Contact the Festival office in advance to reserve your place.
If you play bocce and want to play on our court with others enjoying the festival, join us at the Bocce Tent. No team is necessary. You can sign up for games on-site at the festival.
If you have never played bocce and would like to learn the game, we will teach you. It is very easy to learn. We offer lessons throughout the three days of the festival.
If you simply want to watch the games, either the beginners who are learning to enjoy the sport, or the masters who have been playing for years, come to the Bocce Tent and watch while you are eating a sausage sandwich or a cannoli.
Bocce is always free at the Mercer County Italian American Festival. There is no charge for lessons and there is no charge to play.
Our goal is to promote the Italian American culture to everyone. Sharing bocce helps us achieve that goal. And because we are Italian, we want everyone to have fun.
