The Feast of San Gennaro is a celebration of faith in honor of the Patron Saint of Naples, Italy

San Gennaro was the Bishop of Benevento, Italy. He was arrested in the persecution by Emperor Diocletian. San Gennaro was tortured but he refused to denounce Christ. He was thrown into a furnace but somehow came out with no serious injuries. He was then beheaded.

San Gennaro is honored as Naples’ principal patron. Neopolitans pray to him for protection from fires, plagues, earthquakes, Mt. Vesuvius and droughts.

Many Neopolitans came to the United States in the late 1800s and brought their beliefs with them. Today, many descendants of these Neopolitans believe San Gennaro protects all Italians world wide.

Las Vegas celebrates the Feast of San Gennaro in May and then again in September. The Feast of San Gennaro will be coming to M Resort Spa & Casino in Henderson, Nevada, in the greater Las Vegas area. This will be happening on September 20 through 24, 2023.
