The San Gennaro Foundation is a non-profit organization, created in 2013 to honor St Gennaro, the Patron Saint of Naples, and his commitment to help people in need. It is the goal of the Foundation to raise money through events such as the San Gennaro Festival, which celebrates the Patron Saint of Naples, the Blood Miracle of St. Gennaro, and the contribution of Italian Americans to the Northwest. We are planning a fun filled event with plenty of entertainment, great food, and interesting exhibits. We will also have the participation of the Puget Sound Blood Center and will hold a blood drive during the event, in honor of the Blood Miracle of St Gennaro. Each year the foundation will chose a local charity to donate a portion of the proceeds. Past charities include: Treehouse, Camp Goodtimes, and Bloodworks NW. The San Gennaro Feast is held in May and the San Gennaro Festival is the weekend after labor day.

Mission: The San Gennaro Foundation of Seattle's mission is to celebrate the Patron Saint of Naples and the Blood Miracle of St. Gennaro through an annual festival, and also celebrate the contribution of Italian Americans to the Northwest.

Today would have been the first day of the 8th Annual San Gennaro Festival in Seattle. This pandemic, and all of the smoke from the devastating fires on the west coast, had other plans for us. The most important thing is we all stay safe!! We'll be back next year bigger and better than ever. Until then, have a glass of vino, find your favorite San Gennaro musical act on youtube, and order take out from one of our amazing food vendors. Have a wonderful weekend. CHEERS!!!

Thoughts and prayers for the Sclafani family. Richard was a beloved member of the Italian community. We were lucky enough to have had him perform in years past. May he rest in peace.

It takes a ton of time, sweat, love, stress, more love, and support to put on this festival. We rely on the amazing people who show up and support us each year, as well as the businesses who participate as vendors and sponsors. After careful consideration, we realized with all of the uncertainty in the world, and the struggle many people and businesses are feeling right now, we can't in good conscious attempt to move forward and plan the festival this year. We are taking this time to stay home and stay healthy. We are praying for a quick recovery and cure or vaccine for this virus. We are sad about this decision, but believe it is the best decision we can make at this time.

Mark your calendars super early for 2021! September 10-12th. In the mean time, you can shop local, support past sponsors of the festival and local Italian businesses. Show your love and get in the spirit of San Gennaro by making a donation to your favorite charity or donating some time (when safe to do so). Stay strong, Seattle!

ONE. MORE. MONTH!
We're almost there! We'd like to take this time to thank another long time sponsor, and one of the creators of the festival, Chiodo Brokerage!
Chiodo Brokerage is a family owned business, importing the very best of Southern Italian culture and flavors to their customers. Please stop by their booth for a cannoli (or two) and learn more about how they love sharing the old world traditions of preparing foods (and wines) using wholesome, natural ingredients.
Thank you Chiodo Brokerage for your support of the Festival!
