Overview

Forty-fouryears ago, two men, Noe (Whitey) Marinelli and Bob (Corky) Corirossi had an inspiration, a festival that would join the Italian community in Rockford for one weekend a year. One big family reunion! The Greater Rockford Italian American Association (GRIAA) will be hosting the 45th annual Festa Italiana Fundraiser Aug. 2nd – 4th, 2024. GRIAA is a non-profit organization staffed solely by volunteers, and promotes the Italian Culture through social events, works of charity, and educational activities throughout the community.
