Solo Italiano


Friday, October 6, 2017 & Saturday, October 7, 2017

After 22 years of hosting San Diego’s Little Italy FESTA!, the Little Italy Association of San Diego will be reinventing the event to create an even more authentic Italian experience, featuring only Italian products throughout a weekend-long celebration.

Escape for the weekend to Little Italy’s brand-new two-day event, Solo Italiano, and experience authentic Italian entertainment, food, drinks, Gesso Italiano (chalk art) and more this Fall, on Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th. Solo Italiano will break in the brand new Piazza della Famiglia, a 10,000-square-foot piazza in the heart of San Diego’s Little Italy—making it the first event to be held in the space.

Friday’s Dinner in Rosso will be a one-of-a-kind curated dining experience featuring flowing Italian food all evening, sips of Italian beverages, strolling entertainment, and interactive performances. Saturday’s Solo Italiano festival will span over five blocks of the neighborhood—each block modeling a different region of Italy—Tuscany, Milan, Rome and Sicily, along with a beer and wine garden and a Bambino area for kids.

Family, friends, neighbors and visitors are invited to experience Solo Italiano and take a trip to the boot-shaped country, getting a little taste of each region’s signature experiences, novelties, live entertainment and distinct culture.

Two ticket options will be available for the weekend of Solo Italiano. For access to both events, tickets are priced at $225 a person. To attend only Dinner in Rosso, tickets are $200. Tickets for Saturday’s Solo Italiano festival are priced at $45 for adults, $15 for kids between 10 and 16 years of age, and free for kids under 10. Tickets on sale soon.
