The tradition of the San Rocco Festa was brought to the Aliquippa area by immigrants from Patrica, Italy, where St. Rocco is the patron saint. They settled primarily in the Plan 11 section of Aliquippa, where the original Festa began in 1925.

This year we mark our 90th celebration continuing the tradition of our forefathers. Not only to honor the tradition of our patron saint San Rocco and the memory of our ancestors, but also to preserve Italian heritage and culture in America.

Also, this year we are excited and honored to have very special guests traveling from Italy to celebrate our 90th year of the Festa di San Rocco. The Licinio Refice Band from Patrica, Italy will be traveling to commemorate the celebrations. This is a historical event for our area, it is the first time in 90 years they will be making the trip to celebrate with us here.  All are welcome to meet and give them an outstanding benvenuto!

We look forward to having you celebrate this special year for the Festa and Italian culture with us!

Viva San Rocco!
