This weekend is the return of the St. Anthony’s Feast to Boston’s North End. This feast is the largest Italian religious festival in the United States.
The feast was first celebrated in Boston in 1919 by a group of immigrants from Montefalcione, Italy. They established a society dedicated to honoring the patron saint of their village, Saint Anthony of Padua. The feast has been celebrated here ever since.
Not only is the feast rich in history, but its also full of fun and exciting things to see and do! The feast lasts all weekend starting Friday night and features parades, food stands, concerts and shopping!
It is an event that shouldn’t be missed and is even nationally recognized as the “Feast of all Feasts”! So be sure to stop by the North End this weekend to check it out!
