The 5th annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons is gearing up to welcome thousands of visitors from all over Long Island at its annual East End celebration at Good Ground Road in downtown Hampton Bays. Taking place on Saturday, October 3th and Sunday, October 4th, Festival organizers expect this year's event to top the rest.

"The 2015 San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons will be the best ever," shared Rick Martel, President of the Board of Directors. "Our fifth year is packed with over 100 vendors, 22 hours of music and entertainment, fireworks by Grucci on Saturday night and celebrity signings by Joe Ganiscolli from "The Sopranos" and former heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney, caricatures, face painting and games for the kids."

Festivalgoers can try traditional Italian fare, browse through goods created by local artisans, take a chance on the car and Vespa raffle, enjoy carnival rides and games, signings with notable names, entertainment, fireworks by Grucci, and much more.

Sunday showcases Carmello from 12 to 2 p.m. and again from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the tent, John Ciotta from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on the stage, and East Coast Band from 6 to 8 p.m. on the stage.

The San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons is a charitable organization 501c(3) sponsored by the chamber of commerce that is dedicated to bringing together the East End community and boost tourism of the area during the start of the fall season. Proceeds from the Festival will support the San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons Scholarship fund, Maureen's Haven and Coalition for Women's Cancers at Southampton Hospital.

The Feast has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 17th and Sunday, October 18th due to pending high winds.
