I stopped counting the number of Irish Fests I've been to and it is an arduous journey from Atlantic City. This year's lineup was best ever.. I felt I had my entire trip costs justified after the Thursday night programs. So Friday, Saturday snd Sunday were bonus. The Sunday liturgy inspires both spiritualy and logistically. And the weather was best... More

We came from La Crosse WI to enjoy German Fest. I love this venue and wish we had something like it. What a great way to use space on the water front. Many stages with live music, places for vendors, and tones of places to eat or get a beverage. And tons of restrooms!!!!! And very clean.

Excellent venue for several ethnic festivals and summerfest we have always found it clean, well supervised and to have modern, maintained, and working facilities. Plenty of room for both outdoor and covered activities and events

Almost every weekend in the summer there is an ethnic festival here, such as Mexican Fiesta, Festa Italiana, Irish Fest, Indian Summer, German Fest, etc. The end of June and beginning of July is the largest music festival in the country; Summerfest!

to have festivals go, this is the paradigm! Go to a festival anywhere else and the facilities will pale in comparison. You want fests? We have 'em and they're usually either close or are the largest of their type...and that's where HMFP rules! Want real bathrooms everywhere? Check! 100s of food vendors to choose from? Check! Beer, likker, and wine... More

We visited Festa Italiana for the first time after the great reviews we've heard from our lodge members who have attended in the past. We were not disappointed in the least! This festival had it all. Over the sprawling grounds, you could experience the most authentic of Italian delicacies or be entertained by contemporary aspects of Italian American culture. The... More

I attended all three days of the Festival this year. I went to see The Bronx Wanderers, they are the best. They performed 3 amazing shows this year. On Friday night they were singing "Coming to America" just as the fireworks started, that was so cool. Saturday night they performed right up to closing almost a 3 hour show! I... More
