The 9th annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons will once again take over Good Ground Road in Hampton Bays to present an entertaining mix of new activities and Feast favorites on Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29.

"Continuing off last year's tremendously attended Feast, we have added new and interesting food vendors, an expanded car show on Sunday and Valet parking!" Rick Martel shared. "Admission is still free and it's wristband day everyday at the Carnival!"

The festival, which draws thousands of visitors and locals to downtown Hampton Bays, boasts an exciting array of live entertainment, talented artisans, thrilling midway rides for all ages, a show stopping fireworks, lively competitive eating competitions, delectable Italian delicacies, a Fiat raffle, and more.
