      Little Italy Fest-West in Addison

      The smell of garlic and the sounds of Sinatra, Prima and Valli will once again fill the air of Centennial Park (Lake Street at Rohlwing Road, behind Marcus Cinema ) as the Annual Little Italy Fest-West returns to Addison August 16-18. Fabulous Italian food will turn the park into an exclusive outdoor Las Vegas supper club with top-line national entertainment on three stages.

      "One of the best things about our event is that much of the entertainment is unique and not seen anywhere else in the Chicago area," said Ron Onesti, producer of the event. "Add amazing Italian food specialties, a clean, safe environment and a variety of family fun and you have a party!"

      Village of Addison Mayor, Larry Hartwig said, "What Ron has brought to our community truly is something we can all be proud of. You don't have to be Italian to love this event!"
      Starring homemade Little Italy-style small plates from artichoke and parsley bruschetta to fresh pasta with pesto, pepperoni pies to lasagna rolls, tiramisu to gelato and funnel cake fries, the eating experience offers something for everybody.

      Imported Italian beer, wines and spirits will be available at the ever-popular Dean Martini Bar.
      A full carnival, strolling children's entertainment, bocce courts and a mass on Sunday complete the family experience. Twenty dollar all-you-can-ride carnival wristband days are Thursday, 5-9 pm, Saturday, 3-7 pm, and Sunday 12-4. Authentic Italian merchandise and crafts add to the festival experience.

      Admission to the event is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids 12 and under are free. Thursday night is a free admission day For the complete entertainment lineup and menu , log onto or call 630.962.7000
