LaFesta Italiana has been a long-standing and very popular tradition in our community, attracting over 100,000 attendees annually since it was initiated in 1976. But unfortunately like other area events, it too has been affected by the pandemic.
The Lackawanna County Commissioners and the LaFesta Committee jointly announced that “this year’s celebration has been cancelled. We are concerned with the health and well-being of our residents, the many visitors from outside the region, vendors, entertainers, volunteers, workers and public safety personnel who come together to make this large-scale event happen so successfully. We are committed to everyone’s safety and are focused on preventative measures to stop the spread of this virus. We hope to celebrate with everyone again in 2021.”
