On September 24th & 25th, Richmond’s 17th Street Market will be magically transformed into an authentic Italian village for this year’s 10th Annual Italian Festival. Get ready for the sights, sounds and aromas of the Italian countryside – and a chance to experience what Italian’s call “la dolce vita”, the sweet life.The Original Richmond Italian Street Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the Italian culture and heritage through the venue of a festival that generates revenues to be distributed to selected local charities. The festival charity of choices are Reinhart HouseSlow Foods, Autism Society Central VA, Ninth Dimension and Richmond Fisher House.  The festival will also support the VCU Italian Studies Program by providing financial assistance to students who are studying our Italian culture and heritage.  Please visit their websites by clicking on the name of our charities mentioned above.
