Norton Street's iconic street festival is back again for 2012, bringing food, music, fun and colour to Leichhardt.

Now celebrating its 26th birthday, Festa has a well-earned reputation for providing a great day of community celebration for the whole family.
Norton Street Italian Festa 2012
Showcasing the best of Italian culture, Festa always draws a crowd.

Once again, Norton Street will come alive with hundreds of stalls, specialty Italian experiences, entertainment, all day concerts, children's amusements and some very big surprises.

The event is a celebration of Italian culture, with everything from music and theatre to fashion and food taking centre stage. If you're looking for some of the best coffee, pizza or gelato, this is the place to go.

Whether you're sampling one of the many Italian regional delights, learning some tips from a cooking demonstration, planning a day of fun for the kids or just want to sit back and soak up the atmosphere, there's no shortage of things to see and do at Festa.

Reputedly the largest street festival in Australia, Festa attracts up to 100,000 people each year.

This year will also see the "Italian Affair to Remember" competition, where one lucky couple will win the wedding of a lifetime. If you're keen on entering, all you have to do is tell your love story to the organisers and you could be having your wedding at Festa in front of 100,000-odd people.
