On July 14, I visited Buffalo and went to the Sorrento Cheese Italian Heritage Festival, which takes place in Buffalo's Little Italy on Hertel Avenue in the North end of the city.

The Buffalo Italian Festival is the second largest Italian celebration in the United States in terms of attendance, behind only the Feast of San Gennaro festival in New York City's Little Italy. More than 60,000 people attend the festival each year.

Just south of Hertel Avenue on Delaware, we find this railroad bridge for the New York Central Railroad


Me, along with countless others, walking towards the Italian Festival on Hertel Avenue...


Stage for concerts and entertainment...





Started at the booth for Johnny's Meats (which is based in Little Italy)


Delicious Italian Sausage on a bun...


La Nova is a popular pizzeria in Buffalo…


Salvatore's Pizza Booth...


Pepperoni Stomboli from Salvatore's


Cafe and Bakery on Hertel and other businesses...




Jazz Band on stage… the Bobby Militello Quartet





Joe's Toasted Ravioli


Mmmmmmm!







Another famous Buffalo Italian place, Salvatore's Italian Gardens, I believe it is in Amherst, a suburb...


A full meal almost from Salvatore's Italian Gardens. Meatballs, ravioli, caesar salad, and spinach bread. Along with freshly squeezed lemonade from Tiffany's.


Yes, folks, Buffalo's Little Italy. New York City is not the only city in New York State with a Little Italy!


Angelo's Italian Pastry...


Cannolis, so good...


A gentleman singing and playing the accordion, like a true Italian…


very appreciative...



Sampled some cheese from Sorrento, which is made in Buffalo, delicious...



Cool Rayz Italian Ice...


Cherry-flavored Italian ice...


A little carnival...












Sorrento cheese mascot handing out samples...



talian comedian, Pat Capuzzi, he had a great baldness joke.




Frankie Scinta, famous Las Vegas entertainer who is originally from Buffalo, he's a great energetic singer, voice artist, among other things! He put on a great show!











Last shots of the Italian festival, before heading back to the Metro Rail down the street and going back to my hotel...

Nice pictures. The food looks great!

I have heard conflicting evidence about being the second-biggest Italian festival in the country. Our Italian Festival in Wilmington also claims to be the second-biggest festival, behind the one in New York City, and claims a total attendance of 100,000 if I remember from previous years.

That Buffalo count is missing a zero i think. They've said to have attendance between 400,000 to over 600,000 each year.

Does South Philly have a big Italian Fest?
