Eat, drink, and dance Italian style in the heart of North Beach at the Festa Coloniale Italiana – a festival of Italian culture and cuisine on August 17th.

North Beach Italian Festival -
Stroll down Powell Street, sip world wines, eat Italian food, shop for art and enjoy live music all day – from accordion music to classic Italian ensembles like Sunday 7. Indulge in piping hot pizzas and pastas created by North Beach’s top restaurants and chefs, savor an ice cold Peroni beer, dance the night away and watch exciting cooking demonstrations.
Enjoy a fabulous Saturday afternoon in North Beach eating, drinking and dancing like a fiery Italian. Fox Trot to the sounds of the Bella Ciao band, performing Italian-American hits from the '50s and see authentic Italian tarantellas, mazurkas, and waltzes performed by the Ricco Dancers. Watch 11-time world pizza champion, Tony Gemignani, spin and toss pizza dough or go check out the Museo Italiano exhibit.
From the Inn at Union Square, just hop on the Cable Cars on Powell Street and head to North Beach. Festa Coloniale Italiana is only a few stops from our historic boutique hotel and the perfect place to relax after the food and festivities of San Francisco’s annual Italian festival.
