32nd annual italian heritage festival

The West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival will celebrate its 32nd Anniversary, September 3, 4 and 5, 2010. The WVIHF has been rated among the "Top 100 Events in North America" by the ABA, a "Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society" & on of the "Top 4 Italian Festival's" in the nation by the National Sons of Italy.

During the first West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival in 1979, the wine flowed, tantalizing arrays of delectable food abound and the music was fast-paced. With color, pageantry, entertainment, events, contests, exhibitions and displays packing the streets of uptown Clarksburg, the Festival was an instant success.

With each successive year, the little Festival has grown, and now is rated one of the "Top 100 Events in North America" including Canada and Italy. Each year, this 3-day street festival brings over 100,000 visitors to Clarksburg.

From the opening ceremonies, when the royal court of Regina Maria (Regina meaning "Queen" and Maria the name of the first queen of Italy), is crowned, to its conclusion with the traditional festival ball, the West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival overflows with enjoyment.

Please join us and help to celebrate our 32nd Annual Celebration! This year promises to carry on its tradition of being one of the state's most spectacular and colorful events!

Entertainment and Events for All Ages
The West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival offers events, authentic Italian cuisine and "fun and games" for people of all ages. A special "childrens" area and stage has been added over the years that is designed to entertain the smaller children during the entire Festival, from The Rugrats and Happy the Clown to magicians and music.

Top-named entertainers can be found on the main stage during the Festival. Previous years, Festival goers have enjoyed such notables as Tony Danza, Kathy Mattea, Jo Dee Messina, Joey Dee and the Starliters, and Frankie Avalon - all free of charge to the public.
