San Gennaro’s: A [Multicultural] Italian Tradition

September 20th, 2010 by Chase Lindsay Rosen

San Gennaro’s Feast is going on now in Little Italy, for the 84th year. It is New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most respected religious outdoor festival in the US. It has undergone cultural change over the past years, not only has the fair attracted a wide diversity of people, but the food vendors have adapted from selling traditional Italian food (canoli and pizza) to new American crazes (fried oreos and wheatgrass shots).
