The Official Site of Businesses of Arthur Avenue Known As LITTLE ITALY IN THE BRONX ™


The Belmont Business Improvement District is thrilled to announce that Ferragosto will return to Bronx Little Italy!

We look forward to welcoming everyone back for a day filled with Italian culture, delicious food, and wonderful live entertainment to the intersection of all-things-Italian

at world-famous Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street on Sunday, September 12, 2021.

This ancient Roman festival dates back to 18 B.C. when the gathering was created in honor of the emperor, Caesar Augustus. For over 20 years, the merchants of Bronx Little Italy have banded together to keep this Italian tradition alive by engaging visitors in Italian culture, traditions, music and of course, authentic food.

The Ferragosto event continues to grow each year with thousands of guests who travel from near and far to make it part of their family tradition. Attendees love to explore the Italian culture and experience all the fun, food, and music the festival has to offer. Ferragosto is a chance for people to experience first-hand the neighborhood’s old-world charm and tradition of good taste, including our fine-dining restaurants, our hand-made and imported Italian products and so much more.

2021 Performances by: Nick Vero, Elio Scaccio, Graziana Maria Lazzaro
