I am a 4th generation Sicilian American from Giuseppe Anselmo and Rosa Stabile. My family immigrated from Palermo, Sicily, to Louisiana in the 1890's. My wife and I attended this years festival. It was so nice to go to something specific to our culture. Thanks to all responsible for having this wonderful festival honoring our Sicilian heritage. The Anselmo family looks forward to attending many more.

I just learned about your festival 3/10/12. I will advise my offspring and plan to be there 2013. My grandfather and grandmother were from Sicily. (FULCO- RUSSO) respectively. They settled in south Louisiana before moving to Shreveport. I shall be seeking info soon. I can't wait to enjoy your festival celebrating our heritage.
We are a festival loving family, attending 3 or more annually. Thank you for this festival. The C. R "Chuck" Fulco family.

Just saw a clip from the sicilain festival and would love to go next year. Looked like a lot of fun. We are exploring our Sicilian roots and we think this would be a great way to learn more about our ancestors traditions. When will the festival be held in 2012?
