Where: Main St. in Patchogue
The 52nd annual Patchogue Italian Feast Of Saint Liberata will kickoff this year as it always does — with a traditional procession! During the event, in downtown Patchogue, there will be classic and Italian cars on display, and an annual bocce ball tournament at the Patchogue-Medford Library ( you’ve still got some time to practice). Family-friendly activities include children’s karaoke, a magician, dunk tank, bounce houses, a zeppole eating content (bring your appetite) and more. There will be live entertainment by Giglio Italian Marching Band, John Sirianni and Killin Time, and others. Participating restaurants will also offer guests wine tastings during the third annual “Vino in the Village” wine walk.
When: September 8
Where: Argyle Park in Babylon Village
More than 300 craft vendors will be on hand at this year’s Annual Fair at Argyle Park, but if hand-made items aren’t your thing (even though they should be), the event — run entirely by volunteers — will also offer attendees food and entertaining around the gazebo area. For children, there will be small rides and activities at Bayman Park, located across the canal. What’s new at this year’s fair? A food booth along the lake, and music and entertainment by Pams & Jams DJs. Proceeds received by Babylon Beautification Society will go into beautification projects in the village.
