Enjoy the sweet Italian life
Celebrate a colorful culture in San Jose with live music, tarantella dancers and delicious food at the Italian Family Festa.
In addition to authentic Italian food, visitors can enjoy a relaxing stroll through the Giardino di vino — the wine garden — as they sip some of the finest wines in the region.
But you can make your own wine, too, in the grape-stomp event as you squish and pound your feet in a barrel full of grapes.
Lastly, let some bocce gurus teach you how to play the ancient game on the new Bambino Bocce court.
This free festival runs 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Aug. 24 and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Aug. 25 at North Autumn St., between Julian and Santa Clara Street, San Jose. For more information: www.italianfamilyfestasj.org; (408) 293-7122.
