Vieni Parte Italiana! Little Italy Days started in 2002 to celebrate Pittsburgh’s rich Italian heritage and create a destination spot for Italian-themed entertainment and food. The event has grown through the years and is now a 4 day festival, starting August 17, 2017 in our surrounding neighborhood of Bloomfield. Some of the prized events include Celebrity Bocce Tournaments, Miss Little Italy contest, Tambellini’s Pasta Eating Contest, Italian Cooking Show by Chef Giuseppi and amazing performances by talented musicians like Jimmy Sapienza, Ron D’Amico, Randy Eugene and La Sorelle Di Bacco. The Shadyside Inn All Suites Hotel cordially invites our guests to schedule a complimentary hotel shuttle ride to the event and experience the festive atmosphere!
