Festa Italiana is one of Rockford's largest events and RISCA has a cultural tent there every year with information on our Sister City, Ferentino, historic photos, and information on the Rockford Italian Sister City Alliance itself.

Festa Italiana is a subcommittee of GRIAA (Greater Rockford Italian American Association) and the largest contributor to GRIAA’s scholarship fund. GRIAA’s scholarship fund helps our Italian descendant’s with tuition in our parochial schools. To date, GRIAA has awarded nearly $730,000 in scholarships!
