About the Italian Festival Committee
The Nevada County Italian Festival is run by a volunteer staff of ten officers and ten committee members and dozens of volunteers donating their time, energy and labor twelve months of the year for the annual event. Our goal is to provide a fun-filled atmosphere and to make the festival a traditional gathering spot for thousands to return each year. There is something for everyone to enjoy!
To honor the legacy of Italian immigrants and their descendents: To create, promote and sustain a – Cultural Center in Western Nevada County – an awareness and curiosity about the language, history, religion, politics, economy, family, cuisine, literature, art, architecture, music, cinema, education and etc. All who are fascinated and attracted by the Italian heritage may learn, acquire and appreciate Italy’s unique role and contribution over the past three millennia to us and the entire globe.
