History of our Festival

The Memphis Italian Festival demonstrates the values of family, faith and fellowship in the Italian-American tradition. The Memphis Italian Festival presents family-oriented fun in music, food, events, games, and more for the benefit of the children of Holy Rosary Parish School.

Now in our 35th year, the Memphis Italian Festival is a can’t miss Memphis area tradition where you will see old friends, meet new ones and celebrate the Italian-American heritage in a family friendly atmosphere at beautiful and convenient Marquette Park in East Memphis. 

Every year Holy Rosary Parish comes together to put on the biggest party in East Memphis to help support the community. There are many activities and events to participate in, whether you are young or young at heart.

Bring a blanket, take a seat on the lawn, visit with friends, listen to outstanding musical entertainment, enjoy the food, beverages and all around good time! Come and see for yourself why the Memphis Italian Festival is one of the finest family-oriented community events in the Mid-South.
