There’s Nowhere Better To Feast On Italian Food Than Arkansas’ Little Italy

Most folks don’t know about the community of Little Italy in Arkansas, which is a shame. The area is home to first, second, and now third generation Italian immigrants who have preserved the art of pasta and sausage making. Every year, on the first Sunday in October, the community hosts the Little Italy’s Annual Italian Festival. Let’s dig into this delicious festival.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

If the thought of authentic Italian foods is making your mouth water, head over to the Little Italy website. Besides having information about their food fest, they also have some Old World recipes!
