30th annual Festa Italiana
Saturday, August 1, through Sunday, August 2
It may seem like an odd cultural juxtaposition but there couldn't be a better place to hold the Festa Italiana than the magnificent Croatian American Cultural Center. Enjoy wonderful food, let the kids go wild in the piazza and check out myriad offerings at the marketplace. $12, free for children 15 and under; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at 3730 Auburn Boulevard, http://festaitalianasacramento.com.
