The San Gennaro Festival Society is a 100% Not-For-Profit 501(c)3 Organization. We began in 2010 as a group Italians who remembered fondly, the San Gennaro Festivals in Little Italy, New York (86th yr). Many Italians as well as others from New York & New England attended those annual festivals and after moving to Florida, missed them. We all got together and decided to see if we could bring back those great family memories to our area so our children could enjoy them in their lifetime.

We formed a 100% Non-Profit Corporation. We have no paid employees, only dedicated volunteers. Our office is one of the committee members dining room table and a file cabinet. Our overhead is zero. We want the Italian experience of the San Gennaro Festival but the profits go to those in need in our area. We fund the Treasure Coast Food Bank, Families in Need for Thanksgiving and Holiday Dinners. We also hope to be in a position to provide an annual scholarship for a graduating senior. We want our festival to continue for 50 years!

In the meantime, we needed to purchase a statue of San Gennaro. He is only made in Italy and the cost for the statue, packing and shipping is more than we can support. So we need your help! Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted. In this economy, if you are unable to help us, come to the festival, it's free!!

We bring the annual San Gennaro Festival to the Port St Lucie Civic Center in September. I invite you to visit our
website at www.sangennarofestivalpsl.com
or facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/sangennarofestivalsocietyofpsl
for the details of this years festival on 9/14 & 15/2013. Our festival is always FREE ADMISSION and family fun. Lots of Italian food vendors, retail, arts & crafts, a Kid Zone, and live entertainment.
Thank you and God Bless.

The 3rd Annual San Gennaro Festival
is September 14th and 15th, 2013, at the Port St Lucie Civic Center, Village Square at 9221 Civic Center Place, Port St Lucie, FL.

On Saturday the festival will open with a Catholic Mass under the open air stage at 10:00am with Father Eddie. Mass will be in both English and Italian. Following the Mass the San Gennaro Statue will travel around the Village Square in a traditional Procession. Mass under God's bright blue sky is absolutely beautiful and you won't want to miss it!

Festival Hours: Saturday: 10am to 10pm Sunday Noon to 7pm

The vendors will open directly after the Procession. All of your old favorite vendors and new ones will be there as well as Arts & Crafts, Retail and Businesses.

Don't forget to purchase your Raffle Tickets to win prizes and we also have 50/50 tickets.

Get there early, but be prepared to spend the day. Walk a little, shop a little, eat some Italian pizza and foods, then relax with a glass of wine or Bud Light to sit down and enjoy the live entertainment. Afterwards grab an authentic Italian Cannoli and coffee.

If the music moves you, get up and dance! The San Gennaro Festival is a family affair so bring the kids, Nonna & Nonno (Grandma & Grandpa). As always the San Gennaro Festival Society brings this affair to you with no entrance or parking fees. We are all about community and helping those in need so tell your friends not to miss this festival!
