fisherman's feast 2024 photoThe oldest continuous Italian festival in the North End. Since 1910, this North End Feast has celebrated the devotion of immigrant Sicilian fishermen to the Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca (Our Lady of Help).

When the fishermen immigrated to America in the early 1900s, they brought their traditions with them. Today's Feast is much the same as it was over 100 years ago, with lights adorning the street and the smell of sausage in the air.

The current Feast is organized by the descendants of those original immigrants and still includes a procession of the Madonna through the streets of the North End.

This year the Feast takes place on North, Lewis, and Fleet Streets with its usual enticing selection of entertainment, food and traditional processions.

The feast includes a religious procession through the narrow streets carrying the Madonna Statue. Lots of food, entertainment, games, and street vendors line the streets during the festival.

The festival will also feature the famous Flight of the Angel as well as the Sorrento Cheese tower building competition.
