The Culture of Arizona is very Unique and Special in its own way. Arizona is in the Southwestern part of the United States. Arizona is the sixth largest State in terms of the area. It is the only state in the U.S. that contains four separate desert regions with their own environment.
The Arizona Culture has the native American and Hispanic cultures with a Southwestern touch. This State is great for people who enjoy Outdoor activities and beauty. Arizonian locals are very much into hiking, biking, camping and golf. The restaurants here offer large patios and healthy cuisines.
Arizona is actually an affordable place to live. When compared to other States like Phoenix and San Diego they both have similar climates and population sizes. If someone is relocating from Nevada or California, they can probably notice a significant difference/ reduction in their living expenses.
Now We will discuss the festivities of Arizona. So there are plenty of festivals celebrated every year in Arizona. Some of them are very important to celebrate for all types of people. People of Arizona also get excited about their favourite festival for which they would be for the whole year. So I want to share my Knowledge about one of the festivals:-
ITALIAN FESTIVAL OF ARIZONA-
So, the Story of this began with a wonderful idea of how to bring American-Italian together. This idea was of some locals of Arizona who were actually Italian, so they wanted to get along with all the Arizonian Italians and wanted to create a Community.
There were six gentlemen who had a vision that one day they would have a place that was the centerpiece or focal point for all things Italian. They wanted to create a community that could come together to learn more about Italian culture, arts, traditions and avail themselves of services provided by the Organization.
The organisation would be the hub for local and international businesses that could share their products and services across international borders and provide assistance through local agencies to help build their entrepreneurial efforts with a focus on arts, culture and education.
The ITALIAN FESTIVAL was started in 2013 and it looks much different now than that time. The Crowd has grown much in the valley. The pop-up museum/gallery was a major breakthrough of theirs in 2019 and it was a big success. Now in 2022, they are expanding their wings to the “Italian Marketplace” in which there are many authentic Italian products imported directly from Italy and people could buy them.
So we can say that the Italian Festival has a mission and that is to be the voice and focal point of the Italian Community of Arizona. To represent growth throughout the community. To basically make people aware of organizing cultural, commercial, and administrative Italian activities in support and to the benefit of the American community.
The Italian Association was founded on the premise of promoting Italian culture and Arts. Their vision is to be able to gather in time the necessary financial resources to create an Italian Cultural Centre with Services and Support for the Italian people and the community at large.
