Everyone is welcome even if the only Italian words you know are 'penne' and 'pizza'. The Five Dock area has a strong Italian connection that is celebrated every year with the Ferragosto Street Festival. This popular event attracted in excess of 110,000 people last year and this year promises to be just as popular as the event is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.

Soak up Italian culture with entertainment, food, merchandise, and vehicles.
