Chicago’s Little Italy Festa on Taylor Street was officially back this year! A special thanks to Ron Onesti and Onesti Entertainment for bringing back the Italian fest.
The Food and Entertainment
From the food to the music to the dancing, the fest was a blast. Taylor Street hosted over 20 fantastic local restaurants and vendors, serving delicious Italian foods, including gelato, fried dough, meatballs, pasta dishes, arancini, and SO much more.
Performances included Las Vegas’s The Bronx Wanderers, WGN’s Pat Tomasulo, Haley Reinhart of American Idol, and Postmodern Jukebox, Former drummer of CHICAGO Danny Seraphine with CTA performing the hits of CHICAGO, and ABC TV’s Ryan Chiaverini!
A Thank You to Hardcore Italians Fans
We would like to thank all fans who stopped by the Hardcore Italians booth. Whether you bought a keychain or shirts for your entire family, we appreciate your support from the bottom of our hearts. Since Hardcore Italians is an e-commerce business, having the opportunity to meet many of you, hear how much you love the gear, or how our page makes you laugh and brings back memories was a remarkable experience. The goal of Hardcore Italians is to keep the Italian-American spirit alive, and it is because of our fans that we can do so.
As we grow, you grow with us. We are looking forward to seeing you in the future and Labor Day weekend at Taste of Melrose. As always, WEAR IT PROUD!
