Italy-themed San Gennaro Feast returns to southwest Las Vegas on Sept. 13

The Italy-themed San Gennaro Feast will return to the southwest valley after a year-and-a-half stint at Craig Ranch Regional Park in North Las Vegas.

The 38-year-old biannual festival is set for Sept. 13-17 at 6555 S. Riley St., on a 20-acre lot across from Ikea, near the 215 Beltway and South Durango Drive.

“Typically we always move,” said the event’s president, Anthony Palmisano. The event has also been held at the Silverton , Rio and Grand Canyon Shopping Center.

Fifty performers and bands are booked, Palmisano said, including Zowie Bowie, MJ Live, Shades of Sinatra and the Lon Bronson Band. There will be 70 international food vendors and 60 amusement rides. Unlimited-ride wristbands are $25 on Wednesday and Thursday and $35 Friday through Sunday.
