About Us

Festa features great Italian food, family fun for the whole family including our grand parade, contests and pageants, bocce and golf tournaments, 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 of the city for a week-long run in May.  The Festa is run by volunteers.  They work under the umbrella of The Herrin Chamber of Commerce and in tandem with the City of Herrin and The Herrin Civic Center.
