This year, even more are expected, at the corner of El Lazo Rd between Alicia Parkway and La Paz in Laguna Niguel. FREE parking in the Chet Holifield Building parking area.

Saturday, Oct. 6, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday, Oct. 7, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Of course, there will be Italian cuisine on hand including pasta, pizza, and gelato. After you eat, enjoy a Lucy moment in the grape stomp or feel like Lady and the Tramp in the spaghetti eating contest. You can also just stroll through the festival enjoying the intricate chalk work of I Madonnari.
Bring your kids to play in Il Giardino while you sip on Italian Wine and Beer while listening to Italian performers.
There will be shopping, too, thanks to the finest Italian Vendors in Il Mercato.
Expect all day and night entertainment, and keep your eye out for the Italian celebrities.
