First Friday PK: San Gennaro


This October, First Friday – or Primo Venerdi as the Italians would say - is bringing you back to Little Italy for San Gennaro!

Join us for live performances by Bosco and The Storm, the Midnite Image Band, Kayla Barone, Rachael Hendricks, and Italian music by Roberto Milanese. Enjoy your favorite Italian-inspired eats and libations from the City of Poughkeepsie and beyond!

Back by popular demand is our Cannoli Eating Contest. Let’s see who can eat two cannoli the fastest!

As usual, we have plenty of activities for the kids. Trick-or-treat with the vendors, hit up the bounce house, get your face painted. Special feature this month for children and adults of all ages – a Halloween Contest!

Our Featured Charitable Organizations are: Angels of Light, Family Services, Grace Smith House, & Rebuilding Our Children & Community. Proceeds from all First Friday activities, including Hudson Valley Young Professionals Backyard, will benefit these valuable charities.
