Our Vision

The Little Italy of Los Angeles Association (LILAA) was founded in 2018 to honor and celebrate the many generations of Italians who first immigrated to San Pedro and the Greater Los Angeles area and made this beautiful town their home through their hard labor and sacrifices, leaving their mark and contributing to the history of the city.


We are working hard to promote our Italian culture and heritage through a variety of events open to the surrounding communities.

Come join us!

Whether it is for our 5K ItalyRunLA, our authentic Italian Masquerade Carnevale, our annual Gala or our Street Festival Festa Italiana, we promise that you will have fun and meet many new friends!

Visit our Events page or social media for more information.

Little Italy District

Today, an estimated 20,000 Italian-Americans live in San Pedro and it is only fitting that their heritage is recognized through a dedicated Little Italy District in the 6th Street in Downtown San Pedro.

Little Italy will soon have its own Italian-style Piazza Miramare!

Our vision is to create a vibrant district showcasing the best that our culture has to offer to residents and visitors.


Bringing the Italian community together throughout San Pedro and the Greater Los Angeles Region with programs such as the LILAA Junior Board and LILAA Poetry Competition in partnership with Buono’s Pizzeria.

The Little Italy of Los Angeles Association (LILAA),
