Enjoy Life. Come to the taste. June 17-19

Everything is fast-paced today. Food. Phones. Driving. Shopping. Life. Things happen quickly on College Street too, but our BIA found that there’s a bigger idea uniting the community: it’s a nice place to slow down & spend time in. The BIA, an eclectic mix of businesses in “Little Italy”, conducted some research and lots of eating & tasting to discover that all of Little Italy has delicious food options, stylish boutique shops, authentic culture from around the world & a very European sense of comfort and familiarity. People know each other. Visitors are guests. Time slows a bit, things taste better, folks smile more here. So the businesses decided to encourage “guests” to “Go Slowly” with everything they enjoy on College Street. Drop by anytime. We’d be happy to chat. And come to our “Taste of Little Italy” street festival in June.

Eat
Slowly.

The Taste
of Little Italy

June 17-19

Come to The Taste of Little Italy. It’s our biggest festival of the year, celebrating the rich Italian Heritage of College Street. The entire eclectic community comes out for the street festival to enjoy the live music of over 20 international performers, crafts & artisans, larger expanded patio areas and much more. And of course there’s the food of “The Taste”: over 50 amazing restaurants and kiosks, tastings, cheese, charcuterie, wine and more. So plan on joining us. Come eat slowly & sip slowly & go slowly for the day or the entire weekend. Stay tuned for our schedule for specific event dates and times.

Sip
Slowly.
