In its 90th year, the celebration of the patron saint of Naples will fill the streets of Little Italy with carnival games, a cannoli-eating contest, parades and live music, while Mulberry Street eateries like Balaboosta will serve street snacks from booths outside their front doors. Mulberry St between Canal and Houston Sts; Grand St and Hester St between Baxter and Mott Sts.

I don't really understand the hoopla around this event (and I'm half Italian!) It's just insanely crowded and the same booths over and over, which are mostly county fair-grade sausage and peppers, tall tropical drinks like you'd get on a boardwalk and some carnival rides. I've ended up going multiple times, it's cool to experience once but I don't make it a point to go to the feast. If you go stop by the Church of Most Precious Blood and see the statues. I like to get the traditional candy Torrone, where they chip some off the fresh blocks for you.
I love this feast. The best place you can go is Ferrara Bakery they have the best Italian pastries, coffee and gelato during the whole feast
