September 18, 1:00pm to 7:00pm
The San Gennaro is held every September in Little Italy in NYC, an area with plenty of Italian heritage. Italian immigrants came there seeking to improve their lives beginning in the early part of the 20th century. Now Farmingdale will host a San Gennaro Feast! The Farmingdale, NY event was started by Joe Fortuna and is presented annually in cooperation with the Farmingdale Village Merchants Association and Farmindale Chamber of Commerce. These people and organizations are dedicated to keeping alive the spirit and faith of the early Italian immigrants. The event will attract thousands of people from across Long Island and the surrounding area to main street in Farmingdale to participate in the annual Salute to the Patron Saint of Naples.
