This event features great Italian food, family fun, an array of contests for every family member and a fine arts and crafts exhibit to spotlight the creative talents of regional artists and craftsmen. The City of Herrin rolls out the red carpet for the major yearly event for a week long run in May. The Piazza is the entertainment venue at HerrinFesta Italiana. Located behind the Herrin Civic Center, the Piazza houses our Quality Connection Piazza Stage and the Piazza Beverage and Wine Gardens where you can enjoy your favorite adult beverages. HerrinFesta's Midway features great food, a carnival, and a variety of vendor booths. Entry into the Midway is free, and open to all ages. One of HerrinFesta's premier events is the annual Bocce tournaments. Bocce is an Italian sport that combines the precision of horseshoes with a bowling-style play.
