So where did the Feast of San Gennaro start? The real 11-day event has much to do with patron saints and such but the modern day feast is more about the food.
The 85th Annual Feast of San Gennaro is New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival in the United States held September 15 through September 25, 2011, on the streets of historic Little Italy, the lower Manhattan neighborhood which served as the first home in America for hundreds of thousands of Italian immigrants who came here seeking to improve their lives beginning in the early part of the 20th century.
