Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - One of the largest festivals of the year, is about to make a big change.

The Italian Festival, a North Buffalo tradition, is moving to a new date.

Officials confirm to Eyewitness News that the festival will be held from August 1st through the 4th.

The festival has run in the second week in July for years.

Organizers say the change was made so that the event would not conflict with other festivals.
