Annually nominated as one of the top Family Festivals in Kansas City, we are proud to offer you a weekend filled with fun and entertainment with free admission all 3 days. Entertainment will be virtually non-stop with local talent as well as our national headliners.

NEW FOR 2016 is our first annual KC Milan 3 v 3 Torneo, a one of a kind, all ages, 2 day soccer tournament played on turf in the streets of Zona Rosa! For more information check out the link to our partner club for this event, KC Milan.

Don’t miss the chance to see one of our eating contests on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, as they are typically crowd favorites. Our entertainment headliners include Joseph Vincelli, The Bronx Wanderers (75 minute show) and Lena Prima on Friday night. On Saturday we will feature the Eurorythmns at 6pm followed by The Bronx Wanderers full show at 8:45pm. And Sunday is again full with our outdoor Catholic Mass at 10 AM, Motori in Piazza, our Italian Motorsports Exhibit, and the UNICO Awards where we will be awarding scholarships to graduating high school students of Italian-American heritage. Our sincere hope is that you come out and enjoy part of the festivities all 3 days, because every day will bring something new to enjoy.
