The 2023 Feast of Santa Rosalia, the “18th Avenue Feast”, returns to Bensonhurst from Thursday, August 17th through Sunday, August 27th; located along 18th Ave – between 68th St and 75th St/Bay Ridge Parkway.

Held in honor of St. Rosalia, the patron saint of Palermo, the 11 day streetΒ fair features a huge variety of delicious food and treats, carnival rides and games for all ages, live music and entertainment every night including Italian bands, and fun for the entire family!

Sunday, August 27th, will feature a procession through the streets of Bensonhurst at 2pm, followed by a Mass at St Domenic at 3:30pm.

As per the NYPD 62nd Precinct, 18th Avenue will be closed to traffic from 6pm-11pm on weekdays, and 11am-11pm on weekends. The feast does not seem to have set hours, so this is the best guideline as to when it will be open.
