Pittsburgh’s Little Italy Days started in 2002 to celebrate Bloomfield’s Italian heritage and create a destination spot for Italian-themed entertainment and food. The event has grown through the years and now lasts four days.
Sal Richetti, who was born and raised in Bloomfield has produced the event since 2012. Sal grew up in Bloomfield, attended Immaculate Conception grade school and Central Catholic High School. He is a local musician who has been performing for over 30 years in the tri-state area. “I am excited and honored to produce this community-oriented event in the community where I was born and raised. I want to be able to produce Little Italy Days so the businesses can benefit from the large crowds and everyone else including residents, organizations, schools, and churches can become involved.”
Pittsburgh’s Little Italy Days 2019 kicks off on Thursday, Aug. 15 with Celebrity Bocce and The Italian Granati Brothers band. Friday features The Magic Moments, Saturday you can dance to Earth, Wind & Fire tribute band Let's Groove Tonight and Sunday see Randy Galioto as Elvis! Of course there will be much more throughout the weekend, including Bloomfield's own Bob Scullion & The Mystics 50th anniversary reunion, John Vento's Italian Invasion Band, Mia Z from the Voice, Bloomfield's own Marty Picker, Mirella the Musician, Elias Khouri, Allegro Dance Company, Little Miss Italy, Pittsburgh Penguins National Anthem Singer Jeff Jimmerson, and more!
