A family festival celebrating Italian culture, music and food, "The Galbani Italian Feast of San Gennaro Los Angeles" is held annually the last weekend of September in Hollywood, behind El Capitan Theater. That's where Jimmy Kimmel shoots his show, and he's a big San Gennaro booster. The festival is meant to honor the patron saint of Naples and "propagate unity and cooperation among Italian Americans." There are live music performances plus a lot of games and rides (it's very kid-friendly), but the main focus is one the food. Italian restaurants and purveyors are well-represented here. The festival is free, but the food is not.
