The Feast of Little Italy: Great music, food and lots of fun

The annual Feast of Little Italy in Jupiter starts Friday, Nov. 4, and the opening night kicks off with national talent act, Tre Bella.

The night’s headliner, Tre Bella features three talented singers from New York City known for their high energy, three-part harmony and choreographed routines. The act will showcase an eclectic range of popular songs, from Doo Wop and disco favorites to Frank Sinatra and, of course, a mix of Italian classics.

Warming up for Tre Bella is Lou Galterio, a local singer widely known for his powerful baritone and broad repertoire encompassing the styles of Tony Bennett, Sinatra, Jerry Vale, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and many more.
In addition to the traditional Italian festival food, there will be lots of vendors showcasing jewelry, art, clothing, Italian novelties and cookware.

This year’s newest feature will be the Alla Prima Art Pavilion, where guests of all ages can participate in art demonstration classes. There will also be cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs, wine tastings, a bocce ball pavilion and an expanded children’s festival ride area.

The festivities start at 5 p.m. on Nov. 4 and continue through Nov. 6 in Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter. For more information on the festival, schedule of events, etc., please visit Feast of Little Italy or call 561-427-0500.

Proceeds from the Feast of Little Italy will benefit Little Smiles and the Daily Bread Food Bank of Palm Beach County. Little Smiles is a local non-profit organization that provides toys, games, DVD’s, computers, event tickets, and much more for children in local hospitals, hospices and shelters. Last year, with the support of Sorrento Cheese, the food bank received more than six tons of cheese to help feed the area’s needy families. Sorrento Cheese has already committed to continue its support this year.

Feast officials and charity partner Bank Atlantic will also kick off a toy drive for needy children. Stop by your nearest Bank Atlantic branch throughout Palm Beach County and drop off an unwrapped toy for a child in one of our area’s hospitals, hospices and shelters.
