We have some super secret scoop about this year’s Dayton Italian Festival.
The John Pirelli Lodge at Bella Villa Hall is planning the biggest fall festa in Dayton’s history. It is the 40th year for this popular Dayton festival, which always takes place the weekend after Labor Day. For 2017, those dates are Fri. Sept 8th, Sat. Sept 9th and Sun. Sept 10th.
This year we have a big announcement concerning a new beer available only at the Festa.
In a collaborative with Warped Wing Brewing Company, The Italian club will be serving “Limoncella Lager” at the Festa. Festa Director Brian Andsik announced the news, explaining that the beer would be a similar to the popular Lemon Shandy Wheat beer from Leinenkugel, only a lighter version. Again, the lager will be a small batch brewed exclusively for the festival by Dayton’s Warped Wing Brewery.
The Food Adventure Crew and Dayton Most Metro will be working the Festa again this year, at the wine and beer booths.
