The Ulster County Italian American Foundation is presenting the 9th Annual Italian Festival on the Kingston Waterfront Sunday October 9th 11am-7pm. At this free admission Festival, there will be a large variety of Italian foods, beverages, products, music and family fun! The Foundation is a new 501c(3) not for profit organization, established in July 2015, whose mission is to promote, preserve and celebrate the Italian heritage and culture in Ulster County and beyond.
At the Opening Ceremony the Italian American Foundation will recognize the Italian Signora and Signore of the Year given to recipients based on their community service and selfless volunteering to assist those in need throughout the Ulster County Region. Also, the reigning Miss Italy NY will be present to meet and greet festival goers.
The proceeds from the Italian American Festival will be used to establish the UCIAF Scholarship Fund for graduating Italian American High School seniors in Ulster County who exemplify the values and vision of the Foundation in their community.
