The Third Annual Jeffersonville Italian Festival 2012 will give you the feeling of being at an authentic Italian neighborhood street festival in "Little Italy" without leaving southern Indiana.
Featuring authentic Italian food, music, and activities in a family-friendly atmosphere, the Jeffersonville Italian Festival 2012 will allow everyone to be "Italian for a day."
This year, Adrienne and Co. Bakery Cafe is teaming up with the J. B. Ogle Animal Shelter of Jeffersonville, IN to help raise money for the shelter.

Court Avenue will closed from Pearl Street to Spring Street in Downtown Jeffersonville.
The Italians have a long tradition in the area, dating back to the late 1800s when they settled downtown near the old Haymarket location to create Louisville's version of "Little Italy."
While the "Little Italy" of Louisville is long gone, the Jeffersonville Italian Festival 2012 is designed to recreate the feel of a traditional Italian Street festival common to Italian neighborhoods by featuring authentic Italian food and pastries prepared by local Italian restaurants and a focus on the family, just like it used to be in the old days back in Little Italy.
In 2011, our Second Annual Italian Festival drew over 2,500 guests from 6 counties in southern Indiana, 34 counties in Kentucky, and six states. We are expecting over 4,000 attendees during the three-day event in 2012.Italian FestivalDowntown JeffersonvilleFriday, Saturday & Sunday$3.00 Admission (per person)Kids 5 and Under FREEwww.JeffItalianFest.com
