The Summit County Italian America Festival in Akron has been celebrated for more than 60 years. The festival is held by The Council of Italian-American Society every year to enjoy anything and everything Italian. From wine tasting to a pizza eating contest to fireworks, the Italian celebrations are three days of enjoyment for the whole family. Great traditional food and entertainment are something that everyone can enjoy. There is a homemade wine contest, Italian classics like bocce, morra and more. A mass is held on Sunday and after a spaghetti dinner.
