Barry Wahrhaftig at Media Italian American Heritage Festival
Since 2010, the Media Italian American Heritage Festival has drawn more than 30,000 people coming from a greater than five state area to enjoy a day in celebration of Italian heritage and culture. The festival features excellent food, top-rated entertainment, and activities designed to involve attendees of all ages.
More than 35 Delaware County business organizations make the festival possible each year. Proceeds from the festival benefit programs that promote and advance Italian Heritage culture. Funds are also provided to charities supported by our member organizations.
The Coalition of Italian American Organizations of Delaware County (CIAO Delco) is comprised of eight Italian American organizations in the Delaware Valley. Through its member organizations, CIAO Delco supports a variety of scholarship and memorial programs focused on promoting Italian American Heritage and local community non-profit organizations throughout the region. The annual festival on the first Sunday of June at Rose Tree Park 11:00am-5:00pm — a fun family day highlighting Italian culture in the United States — is produced in partnership with Eventfully Yours, Int. and is the primary initiative of the organization.
