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. Our Festa Italiana is typically the 1st weekend after Memorial Day each year starting on Friday at 5pm and runs thru Sunday evening. Live entertainment is offered non-stop for the weekend including national acts and some of the best local and regional talent. The weekend also includes Calcio Di Strata (outdoor street soccer tournament), Motori in Piazza (Italian Motorsports Show), an outdoor Catholic Mass on Sunday and kid zone with bounce houses. Come enjoy some of the best Italian food from local restaurants and shop some of our local vendors. This is our largest fundraising event of the year, and all proceeds go to support our scholarship fund.
Annually held in August, we are proud to offer you an afternoon of some of the finest craft and microbrews from local, regional and national brewers. The festival is open to the public, so friends and family can attend at no charge and enjoy the atmosphere and free, live entertainment. To participate in the brew tasting, tickets must be purchased in advance or at the gate, but quantities are limited. With your purchase you receive a souvenir tasting glass and unlimited tastes of all the brews available for the duration of the festival. Food and Non-Alcoholic beverages will also be available for purchase. This is a fundraising event and all proceeds go to support UNICO charitable donations throughout the year including the Salvation Army, Boy Scouts of America, Mid-America Games and The Sister Servants of Mary just to name a few.
