After months of preparation, the Italian-American community of Iowa is thrilled to welcome all of you to the fourth annual Italian American Heritage Festival of Iowa!

Every year our festival gets bigger and better. This year, we return to the Western Gateway Park in downtown Des Moines.  With more space than ever before, we have added additional entertainment acts, expanded our cultural exhibits, enhanced our activity offerings to include EVERYONE in the family, and brought back the many outstanding local food vendors that transform our festival into a virtual taste of Italy in Des Moines!
