About La Festa

A joyful feast of fun, faith and delicious food awaits at LA FESTA ITALIANA, Holy Rosary Church’s 110th Old World street festival that begins Wed, Aug. 14 and runs through Sun, Aug. 18. For five days, from 5-to-11 pm at Holy Rosary Church, 344 Sixth Street between Brunswick & Monmouth Streets, friends and neighbors will celebrate Holy Rosary’s 128 Years as the first Italian parish in New Jersey.

“We are pleased to share La Festa Italiana with our devoted parishioners, beloved neighbors and extended Jersey City family,” Rev. Jerzy “Jurek” Zaslona, Holy Rosary Church’s Pastor says. “This wonderful tradition that began 110 years ago here in Jersey City brings together life-long friends from across the tri-state area and builds strong ties with our community. This year, La Festa Italiana promises to be better than ever and we look forward to sharing this tradition with our Holy Rosary community.”
