Back Home for Our 20th Anniversary Festival!

After one year away, Central New Jersey's number one festival is returning home.


"We are happy to be back at our home," said an excited John Scarpati, founder and president of the festival. "We have worked with the Mercer County Park Commission over many years to get the festival grounds to where they are today. We are thrilled to be, once again, working with the Park Commission to bring our great festival to the citizens of Mercer County."



The Mercer County Italian American Festival invites you to share your story of growing up Italian (or with Italian friends). We all have stories that our grandparents or parents passed down to us or that we lived ourselves that, when shared, create a common bond among all of us. So tell us your story in 250 words or less and include a photo related to the story. Selected stories and photos are published on the festival website.
