Say buon giorno to the Norton St Italian Festa
Returning for its 28th year, the Norton Street Italian Festa will once again inject Leichhardt with a celebration of all things deliciously Italian.
Enjoy all things Italian at this annual fest.
Everyone is invited to join in this fun family day out in the heart of Sydney's 'Little Italy' on Norton St, Leichhardt. There will be fine Italian produce stalls, free cooking demonstrations, Italian specialty experiences, concerts and carnival activities for the kids.
And for the 'big kids'- there's Auto Festa, Sydney's largest collection of Classic, Vintage and Contemporary Italian made motor cars, motorbikes and scooters.
More than 100,000 visitors enjoy Festa each year and in 2013 over 125,000 saw the Italian episode of My Kitchen Rules filmed - this aired this year to 2.7 million viewers.
