The program is conducted by college students from around the diocese and some seminarians.

of Blessed Pope John Paul II.
SAN GENNARO MUSIC FEST & MIDTOWN BLOCK PARTY
The Cathedral's San Gennaro Music Fest will be an Italian street festival with just the right kick of Music City flair. We will take over the heart of Midtown, converting our already vibrant area surrounding the Cathedral into a place for the senses: the area strung with lights, live music, pasta, gelato, freshly brewed espresso, beverage gardens, an Italian restaurant, and more. Two stages will keep live music playing continuously. The Music Fest will also include guided tours of the Cathedral, nationally recognized speakers, and a children's activity area.
The Cathedral Midtown San Gennaro Music Fest will take place the third weekend in September, in honor of San Gennaro's feast day. The event will help us celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral church. Want to be part of planning and/or putting on this fabulous event?
