st ann's festival hoboken 2016

St. Ann’s Italian Festival is an annual tradition for so many in Hoboken and its surrounding communities. It is no accident that this festival is going on 106 years strong. The festival starts tonight at 6pm.

Located at St. Ann’s Square on 7th & Jefferson, multiple blocks are closed to vehicles while pedestrians fill the streets to enjoy the event.


There is fun for all ages including rides, games, crafts, raffles, live music, and of course, a bar. Enjoy food from the street vendors or try your luck at the 50/50.

One St. Ann’s highlight that can’t be missed is their famous zeppoles. Get your hands on this fried dough and you won’t regret it, I promise.


This year will also include a Pizza Contest. On Saturday, July 23rd from 3-4pm head over to “Café Under the Stars” on 7th and Madison for the 2nd Annual Pizza Cook-Off. There will be guest judges to name the victor.

The party is just getting started when the sun goes down, so be prepared to stay out late for live music on the main stage starting around 8/8:15pm every night.
