In late 2021, the Naples Grape & Arts Festival LLC conducted a month long survey to determine how best to maximize the "guest experience" of the tens of thousands of visitors to the Naples Grape Festival. Much of the feedback spoke highly of what the Festival already offers especially the social aspects of getting together with family and friends during the celebratory weekend. However, what was unexpected was from local residents who spoke of long ago events that were no longer part of the Festival. This nostalgia formed the basis for bringing back many of the activities that had been enjoyed by Neapolitans in the earlier days of the Festival. With the enthusiasm of a team of volunteers, we are delighted to offer the following Community Events as part of Naples Grape Festival 2022.
