“Beautiful church is the cornerstone of Wilmington's "Little Italy"”

Saint Anthony of Padua Church
Reviewed September 1, 2012

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 the Festival. I don't know if the church is open during the week except during Mass, but it would be worth a side trip if your group if visiting Winterthur, Hagley, Longwood, etc. Call the church office to check for their hours.

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 as much fun as the festival.
