Yeah, You Love Pasta, but Do You Love It Enough to Compete in a Speed Eating Contest?

With about 15 booths made with colorful roofs covering folding tables filled with an array of Italian pastries, foods homemade by Italian club members, and Italian wines, Festa Italiana launched its humble beginning. It was 1978. The wine flowed, Italian music played, and the aroma of Italian food filled the air.

Today, Festa Italiana is one of the largest ethnic festivals in the city – an event that attracts thousands of Houstonians! Growth has been a 32-year dedication to the commitment Houston Italians made to themselves to maintain their cultural heritage, and to their hometown to be active participants in Houston’s development as a major city.

On Saturday, October 13th at 1:30 and Sunday, October 15th at 3:00 we’ll sign up 12 hungry volunteers to test their skills of speed eating to finish a heaping helping of the Festival’s finest pasta and sugo. The Houston Italian Festival will be held on the grounds of the University of St. Thomas. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled weekend!

Westmount at Summer Cove Apartments, an extraordinary blend of comfortable and convenient apartments in Houston, Texas, would like to remind our friends and neighbors of this event!
