The Italian Festival of St. Liberata headlines a packed weekend of events in the coverage area.

The festival and bocce tournament kicks off at noon Saturday on East Main Street. This year’s Italian-American of the year in Patchogue Village is John Rocco. Learn more about him here.

But great food and great fun outdoors doesn’t end Saturday as the Patchogue feast winds down.

In Bellport Village Sunday, Avino’s Italian Table will be hosting its 5th annual Italian Festival from 10 to 6 p.m., with music and games.

At that same time in the village, Porter’s on the Lane is hosting its annual Oktoberfest party.
