Sun 29 Oct 2023

The annual Italian festa will be taking over the streets of Leichhardt in October. The street festival has been celebrating Italian culture since 1986 and has become one of the largest in Sydney. Visit Leichhardt (aka 'Little Italy') for the day and embrace the lively Italian spirit!

The outdoor event will feature a bevy of stalls, carnival rides, music and entertainment from 10am to 5pm. Previous live performers have included Australian Idol singer Cosima De Vito, R&B / pop music artist Tony Sergi and comedian James Liotta. View the event website for details closer to the date for program announcements and who will be donning the stage this year.

A key attraction of this festival is the delicious food. Taste an array of street food and watch food demonstrations by talented local chefs and Italian nonnas! The cooking stage will leave you inspired to fire up your pasta-making skills at home. Whether you love nothing more than a bowl of gnocchi, a slice of pizza, or a hand-made cannoli, you will find no shortage of beautifully prepared cuisine. Che bontà!

There will also be an Auto Festa, a display of vintage and contemporary Italian vehicles. View the finest automobiles and motorbikes made by Alfa Romeo, Ducati, Vespa, Aprilia, Piaggio, Sol Invictus and Fiat. Members of the public can also participate and show their vehicle by registering with [email protected].

Join in the festivities and experience a taste of the passion, talents and generosity of our thriving Italian community in Sydney.
