Tipton, Pennsylvania – If you enjoy delicious Italian food and fine Italian music, then it is time for you to pull out your red, white, & green and join the DelGrosso Family this Sunday, September 19 for the 31st Annual Italian Food and Heritage Festival.

“We are proud of our family heritage and traditions. If there is one thing Italian’s love, it is good food. This annual showcase of food, family, and fun is a celebration we look forward to every year,” says Carl Crider Jr., President of DelGrosso’s Park.

The Italian Food and Heritage Festival runs from 11am-4pm on Sunday, September 19. DelGrosso Foods, Inc. and the Lung Disease Foundation of Central PA sponsor this annual day of Italian food and music.

There is always something for every taste bud to enjoy. The Kitchens of DelGrosso will set up in Pavilion #2 as an Italian Food Villa with multiple serving stations for guests to try the many amazing food items, including Homemade Lasagna, Grilled Chicken Alfredo and much more. Guest favorites such as Italian Wedding Soup and Pasta Fagioli will be in the Green and White Tent, while DelGrosso’s own Italian Sausage Sandwich with Peppers & Onions and the Meatball Sandwich can be found in Pavilion #3. Top off your visit with our delicious Italian Rum Cake or Tiramisu and do not forget our Pizza Fritte (Italian Donut) on the Midway. Pacifico Bakery will have their amazing breads and Mt. Carmel Church features Italian Pastries that will include Biscotti and Cannoli. Plus, wine tasting from Oak Spring & Starr Hill Wineries for those 21 years and older with I.D.
