What is the HaverTalian Festival?

The HaverTalian Festival is a Haverford Township celebration of Italian culture and good food.  All are welcome!  We celebrate God, family, community and a love of Italy mixed with nostalgia for the old country that was home to our Italian ancestors.  The HaverTalian Festival features live music on a large outdoor stage, food vendors from around the Philadelphia area, crafters, merchants, wine/beer garden and a Fun Zone with inflatables for the kids.  The HaverTalian Festival is produced by Kelly Music for Life, a 501c3 non-profit member of the Haverford Township Civic Council and presented in cooperation with St. Denis Parish.

The HaverTalian Festival is a completely volunteer–driven event and can only be produced by community support and financial generosity.  Whether your contribution is donating your time or cash, it is a vital to the success of the HaverTalian Festival.  Admission is FREE, however we suggest a $3 per person donation at the entrance.  THANK YOU for your donations and your enthusiasm!
