Little Italy of the Ozarks Festival

The Italians that settled in this area more than a century ago were a tight knit community that enjoyed socializing over good wine and food. Over the years, this region fondly became known as “Little Italy of the Ozarks.” We honor the area’s Italian social traditions at our Little Italy of the Ozarks Festival Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19. Celebrate with us on our beautiful campus.
