The most gorgeous arts event of the year is fast approaching.  Be a part of the dynamic team that is presenting the Little Italy Baltimore Madonnari Arts Festival 2016 on September 30-October 3, 2016..  Fifty artists, including eight featured Madonnari masters, will literally paint the streets of Little Italy in this magnificent 3 day festival that includes theatre and music, a children’s chalk center and more.

Thank you to all who attended the delicious pre- Festival fundraiser hosted by Baltimore STYLE magazine at KOHLER Signature Store on September 8.  Two hundred guests enjoyed food, wine and beer provided by the Little Italy restaurants and our wine and beer partners, Folonari Wines, Banfi Vintners, VOGA ItaliaMamma Mia Wines, Flying Dog Brewery and Birra Moretti.

Thank you to the AIAC and Columbus Celebrations, to the incomparable Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo, and to all of you who shared a phenomenal evening with us  at the Festival kickoff cabaret.

All volunteers please check in at the Information Center on Fawn Street at S. High Street for your assignments.  Your support is greatly appreciated.
