Festa Italiana is an ethnic festival held annually at the Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is the largest Italian-American festival in America[1] and features Italian music, food and entertainment. Sponsored by the Italian Community Center, the festival is also known for its large fireworks and pyrotechnics shows put on by Bartolotta Fireworks.[2]

The event, along with Summerfest and the many ethnic and cultural festivals held throughout the city, is what gives Milwaukee the nickname "City of Festivals."[3]
