Every fall, thousands gather in downtown Hampton Bays for an entertaining mix of new activities and old traditions, like delicious Italian delicacies, during the annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons. If October seems too far away, join festival supporters during a Community Kickoff Celebration at Oakland’s Restaurant & Marina on Wednesday, July 15th.
From 7 to 10 p.m., attendees will be treated to live entertainment from Johnny Avino, dishes from East End restaurants, hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, amazing Chinese auction items from local businesses, Grand Stand Sports and Memorabilia, silent auction prizes and more.
Tickets are $65 and they are available at Skidmore’s Sports (9 East Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays), Scotto’s Pork Store (25 West Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays), and GiGi’s Kids (48 West Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays).
