The Italian Festival, like many venues, is going to a primarily cashless payment system.  Cash will be accepted in limited locations (entrance gates, a few stands with signage indicating cash is accepted), but all patrons will be asked to pay for purchases by either major credit card or Festival gift (cash) cards.  Festival gift cards may be purchased as the tent at 9th &  Scott Sts. near the Grade School entrance, or at a discounted price in advance online (see below) and sent via USPS, or in-person at St. Anthony’s rectory (901 N. DuPont St; M-F 9AM-3PM; M-Th 5:30-8PM), at St. Anthony’ Grade School office (1715 W. 9th St; M-F 7:30AM-6PM through Tues; 6/7 & 7:30AM-3PM Wed; 6/8-Fri; 6/10).
