Italian culture takes center stage at the first annual Arkansas Italian Food & Culture Festival April 20-21 in North Little Rock. The festival is being held at the North Shore Riverwalk.

“In reality I’ve wanted to do a festival like this for many years,” said festival co-founder Patrick Presley. “I’ve long looked for a way to honor my mother’s family who came from Italy. Also, I’ve always believed that there was far more diversity in the American South than most of the country realizes or the history books have given us credit for. That’s also a key motivator for me personally. Part of that diversity is the role of Italian-Americans in Arkansas, which as a state we have a deep and rich history going back to Italians arriving in Lake Village, Tontitown, Center Ridge, Pine Bluff, Marion, Little Italy, and certainly Little Rock and North Little Rock. This is a great way to highlight that culture and history on many levels. And who doesn't love Italian food?”
