A community event to celebrate the Italian heritage and culture! With this event, Desert Arc is acknowledging the generous donation of land for our current campus from the Western Italian Golf Association in 1983... and the Italian heritage of our current Executive Direcetor, Richard Balocco.
This event will have different types of vendors, performers, and a children's fun area. We forsee the festival becoming an annual event and in the future envision it becoming a popular event that draws people to the Coachella Valley and the city of Rancho Mirage.
A day of fun and celebration filled with entertainment! Savory Italian food! Experience Italian Culture! Enjoy Contests! And there's something for everyone including a children's fun zone!
