Sydney’s little Italy, Leichhardt, will be buzzing with locals, foodies and everything Italian, when Festa comes alive on the 29th of October. Now in its 31st year, Norton Street Italian Festa will be a place to gather for those who love Italian food.
Italian Festa is so popular that more than 140,000 people visit each year.
Held in Norton Street, Leichhardt, there is an abundance of market stalls, great food and wine and a long communal table for family and friends to gather and enjoy delicious meals.
The children will never get bored as the day is packed full of fun activities and entertainment. For the ‘big kids,’ Festa will showcase Sydney’s largest collection of Italian cars including Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini and Ferrari.
Other entertainment on offer: carnival rides, jumping castles, puppet shows, roving minstrels and stilt walkers, animal farms and face painting, bands and dancing competitions. There is plenty to do for everyone.
Foodies will be able to watch cooking demonstrations by Italian Chefs and sample some of the dishes.
