St. Anthony's has the largest area carnival and week-long festival in Northern Delaware. Somehow its reputation has grown such that it is often listed as one of the top 10 things to do in Delaware. Save you money and your time as the church has found new ways to take your money while the value of the "Italian" portion of... More

We visited St. Anthony's again this summer for the Italian Festival. We always stop to visit the church 1st. It is a beautiful old church with a very pretty fountain out front. I find the doors and architecture to be amazing. As always, we had a nice time at the festival. This year the festival was smaller in size. We... More

You will need to use GPS to find the church as there are several one-way streets in and around the city of Wilmington proper. We decided to attend the Saturday mass vigil at 5:30PM. They also have mass Sunday at 7, 9 and 11AM. There are daily masses as well that are listed on their website. We parked on the... More

Old-style Roman Catholic church built by the Italian immigrants from the neighborhood it serves. Really lovely ornately decorated interior.

Saint Anthony's is a beautiful church in the heart of Wilmington's Little Italy neighborhood. The neighborhood itself has changed over the years, and not necessarily for the better. The area is not as well-maintained as it was in the past, but many cities suffer the same fate. Their festival, held in June each year, attracts people from far and wide.... More

No dislikes. I am not Catholic, but I have visited many times. It is open for tourists and visitors during the Italian Festival (week-plus long ethnic festival in the neighborhood around St. A's in June). Beautiful side chapels with statues of the saints, which are paraded around the neighborhood in the parade of the saints which is also part of... More

Every year this church holds a week long festival that they are known near and far for. It's a great cultural experience, giving a glimpse into the local Catholic Italian American lifestyle. The food is the real deal, they offer wine and beer, a carnival, music and a smattering of jewelry and other wares for sale. People watching is almost... More

The church itself is beautiful and St. Anthony's Italian festival in June is not to be missed. Something for everyone, great food and rides
