SAN GENNARO FESTIVAL on Friday, September 7th through Sunday, September 9th, 2018 in Georgetown!
The Feast of San Gennaro, originally a one-day religious commemoration, arrived in the United States in September 1926 when immigrants from Naples congregated along Mulberry Street in the Little Italy section of Manhattan in New York City, to continue the tradition they had followed in Italy to celebrate Saint Januarius, the Patron Saint of Naples. His feast day is September 19 in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. In 2013, a group of Italians in Seattle decided to bring this wonderful tradition here! The first San Gennaro Festival was able to donate just $1000, and we’ve grown to donating over $15,000 per year.
