What is the Italia Festival of Lititz, PA?

L'Italia Festival is an annual Italian Cultural Festival presented by the Keystone Italian Project and Piccolo Eatery.  The goal of the Festival is share and celebrate the things we love most about Italy -- the sense of community, the language, the games, the music, and (of course) the food!

With an array of local vendors, restaurants, craft stands, and food trucks, this year's Festival promises to be a great time, so add it to your calendar and help us spread the word!


Why attend The Italia Festival?

It starts with great food.  But there's a lot more!  Enjoy a beautiful day at the park with family and friends, celebrating Italian history and culture. There will be a kid zone, yard games, live music, cooking demos, stories from Italy, poetry, dancing, and an entire craft village!

What should I bring?

Bring your friends and family!  The more the merrier 🙂

Guests are also encouraged to bring blankets and/or lawn chairs to enjoy the good weather and watch our fantastic lineup of speakers, singers, and chefs.

What if it rains?

Festivities are planned rain or shine.

We will be checking the weather closely and will post updates here.  In our first year, we were blessed with a beautiful Fall day.  We hope for the same this year.

How do I get there?

L'Italia Festival is held at Lititz Springs Park located at 24 N Broad St, Lititz, PA 17543, just off of Rt.501 in downtown Lititz.

There are a number of parking options in and around Lititz Springs Park.  Festival guests are welcome to park on the grass at AMBUCS Field, just west of the park (where the 4th of July fireworks are held each year).  Nearby, there is ample paved parking at Warwick High School. 

If you prefer parking closer to Main Street, on the East side of the Park, we recommend the large parking lot between North Lane and the train tracks, accessed via Sturgis Lane near the LGH / Penn Medicine building.

Do I need to buy a ticket?

Tickets are NOT required.  The festival is completely free and open to the public 🙂

Make sure to stop by one of our Welcome stands to pick up a free brochure and park map.  You can also buy "Lititz Euros", which are custom wooden tokens that are excepted as cash at any of our participating vendors.

What is a Lititz Euro?

Lititz Euros are tokens that may be used to buy food and products at the Italia Festival.   They work just like dollars (at a 1:1 conversion rate). 

If you are interested in purchasing Lititz Euros for yourself or a friend, you can buy them in advance of the festival at Piccolo Eatery.  On the day of the event, Lititz Euros will be sold at our blue welcome tables.
