2018 sees the inaugural Festa Italia which is set to become a key date in the city's calendar. On Sunday 9th September, Lancaster city centre will be taken over with a celebration of all things Italian. With cooking demonstrations, Italian entertainment, food and drink, and a street market showcasing top Italian brands alongside artisan produce, there really is sure to be something for everyone.

We will also be having an umbrella canopy along New Street in the run up up to this festa and throughout the event. This will also run in conjunction with an umbrella trail that will guide locals and visitors alike around the city centre, to discover the city and the unique range of businesses available. all business involved will be offering a 'Trail Treat' and each store that included will display a sticker in the window so you can go and claim your treat in each location.

To ensure that anyone attending the event thoroughly enjoys their visit to Lancaster, a range of entertainment will be on offer for visitors and children. There will also be a variety of Italian music and Street Entertainment as well as Children's Crafts,Face painting, Pasta/Pizza making and the Umbrella City Trail to complete.
