FESTIVAL DELICIOUSNESS TO GO: Italian festival to offer carryout again today

When rain puts a damper on your plans, you change the plans.

One of Dayton’s most beloved festivals — famous for food prepared over countless hours by dedicated volunteers — is offering drive-up service again today so you can grab some festival food to take home. 

Both the Dayton Greek Festival and the Italian Fall Festa offered to-go options on Saturday. The Italian Fall Festa has extended that promotion through today beginning at 11:30 a.m. 

The Dayton Greek Festival is planning to operate as usual today. No carryout plans as of this morning, but admission is FREE.

And for those who don’t mind a little rain, many festivals are still on in addition to the Greek and Italian celebrations!

ITALIAN FALL FESTA CARRYOUT EXTENDED

Due to the rain, festival organizers are continuing a “Grab and Go” order line beginning at 11:30 a.m. today with all your Festa Favorites including pasta dinners, pizza, meatball, Italian sausage and Italian beef sandwiches. Calzones, Muffaletta and Sicilian sandwiches, Caprese, Italian bean salad, desserts and more. Just drive-up, place your order and volunteers will do the rest. You don’t have to leave your vehicle! Bring cash, as no credit cards are accepted.

The festival runs through 8 p.m. today. Today is the famous spaghetti and meatball dinner, and a limited-edition Warped Wing brew, Limone Lager, is available as supplies last. There’s a spaghetti-eating contest at 3:30 p.m. as well.

UPDATED SEPT. 9: The Italian Fall Festa is offering some of its best foods to go again today, extending its carryout services due to the weather.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

If there’s one thing that makes me feel right at home, it’s the smell of homemade sauce and meatballs. Luckily for me, there is plenty to be had at Italian Festa, running through this weekend.

I arrived at Bella Villa Hall for a Facebook Live (see below) and was spoiled with cannoli, meatballs and even a bocce ball lesson.

While I was there, I learned quite a bit about the festival, and I want to share these things with you so you and your family can have as great of an experience as I did.

WHERE TO PARK

Not only is admission to the event free, so is parking. Park at Reynolds and Reynolds (located at 1 Reynolds Way, Dayton) and hop on the free shuttle to the event at Bell Villa Hall. 

>> Break out your stretchy pants (and ponchos). Here’s how to hit 7 of the weekend’s biggest festivals

WHAT YOU NEED

Bring your appetite, and cash. There are ATMs on site, but you can always save yourself the ATM fee by being prepared. I highly recommend bringing at least $40 so you can try all the food (most plates are around $6, all under $10) and beverages (you can purchase a whole bottle of wine for just $14!) your heart desires — and fit in a few games of bocce ball. 

>> 6 reasons you shouldn’t miss the Italian Fall Festa

CATERING TO ALL

Event organizer John Fantauzzo explained to me a little about the Friends of Festa, an assistance program that helps everyone get a full plate, and to their seat quickly, safely and happily. Whether you’re trailing little ones behind you, or your grandma has a walker, no one need feel uncomfortable thanks to Friends of Festa. The complimentary service runs noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Fantauzzo also mentioned how the festival has become more accessible over the years with less carpet, streamlined dining lines and two portable toilet sites, among other facility updates.

AN EXCLUSIVE TASTE

During the Facebook Live interview, I learned about Warped Wing’s exclusive brew for the festa. It’s described as a “hint of lemon, but not too fruity — very refreshing.” Last year, the festa brew sold out early in the day Saturday. This year, they’ve doubled their order and are prepared for sales through Sunday (if it lasts, that is.)

>> FESTIVAL MADNESS: It’s non-stop food, beer and cheers in September

KEEPING IT LOCAL

While a few items are ordered from bakeries, nearly all of the food at the festival is made by even organizers and club members. The bread is from a Dayton-area bakery, and the meats are provided by a company in Ohio too. Aside from imported Italian wines and beers, all items are made and sourced right here in our state. How cool is that?

PLAY BALL!

Whether you’re looking for the weekend game, or want to try your shot at bocce ball, there’s plenty of good sporting fun to be had. There will be 14 TV’s broadcasting football games over the weekend, as well as the opportunity to play on one of Ohio’s best bocce ball courts, available to rent for $20/hour.

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITES

On Sunday at 10 a.m., there’s a Meatball Madness 5K run. Not a runner? The free meatball sub given out to the runners may just change your mind. On Sunday at 3 p.m., there’s a spaghetti eating contest — if you’ve got an iron gut — you’ll be immersed in deliciousness.
