We are all aware of the COVID-19 crisis in our country and the necessary precautions required to protect the health and safety of our families and friends. Due to State regulations restricting public and private gatherings, we have cancelled the Italian-American Heritage Festival of Iowa that was scheduled for this summer. Once we have weathered this crisis, we will begin to focus our efforts on planning the next festival.


Perform On The Main Stage

Got talent? We have the perfect FREE opportunity for your group! The Italian American Heritage festival is offering a venue, FREE OF CHARGE, for your group to perform at this year’s festival. This is a great way to showcase your talent and advertise your organization. All information available here ….. Talent Showcase 2019.


Show Off Your Italian Pride

 A wall of 2’x2′ vinyl banners will be on display throughout the festival, yours to keep after the festival.

Sing In The Choir

A mass honoring the elderly will be held on the Casey’s stage of the Viva L’Italia Festival on Saturday, July 25th at 4:00 pm.  Italian priests and deacons of the Des Moines diocese, will be invited to celebrate.
