Celebrate St. Joseph's Day in New York City with a Prix-fixe Lun | Cacio e Vino | Sunday, 18. March 2018

Bring the whole family to celebrate St. Joseph's Day or La Festa di San Giuseppe Cacio e Vino!

San Giuseppe, or Saint Joseph, is one of the most venerated saints south of Rome. The spouse of the Virgin Mary and the guardian-father of Jesus, he is regarded as the patron saint of fathers, capenters, and those who toil for their work.

In the 10th century, a drought caused a severe famine. Devotees of Saint Joseph prayed to him to bring rain, and in return, they promised to hold a feast in his honor. Rain and recovery from hunger did come, and since then, the ritualistic feast of Saint Joseph has been celebrated.

In addition to lunch, there will be a short concert of Sicilian folk songs and folk music presented by the duo Villa Palagonia and a discussion about Saint Joseph and the feast day traditions presented by Allison Scola of Experience Sicily.
