Only one more day left. The Columbus Italian Festival runs through 8:00 PM today. The Columbus Italian Festival does not run through Columbus Day, Monday.
The Columbus Italian Festival is at St. John the Baptist Italian Catholic Church in Italian Village. The church address is 720 Hamlet St, Columbus, Ohio.
We went late afternoon Saturday, great food, great music, great people watching. The music is not all traditional Italian music or big band music. We listened to Yumbambé a band that does “Afro-Cuban Jazz and Salsa” as well as traditional big band stuff like “When the moon hit’s your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore…”
Pizza! Pizza! Pizza!
There's lots of other good Italian food too.
The Columbus Italian Parade is 2:00 today and the best local high school band (in the competition) will be determined.
I live and work primarily on the far northside of Columbus but Italian Village is a great place to visit.
