Last year, 30,000 pieces of salami were consumed over two days.

A weekend celebration of cured meats is returning to Melbourne for its sixth round of salami tastings, workshops, Italian cooking and hearty competition.

Based on previous years, at least six thousand people are expected to attend the salami gathering at Welcome to Thornbury.

There will be a Grand Salumi Garage showcasing salami tastings from Italian, Spanish, German and eastern European traditions.

And while you’re taste testing slices of salami, be sure to vote in the People’s Choice Award.

Visitors can get hands-on with demonstrations by local salami producers and learn to make their own salami in the designated Makers Area.

The best homemade salami-maker will be crowned by Movida owner Frank Camorra, Bar Idda’s Alfredo La Spina and Ready Steady Cook chef Adrian Richardson.

Make sure you don’t miss the official Procession of the Pig at 4.30pm, where the new salami-making champion is announced.

Opening hours:
Sat October 13, 12pm–10pm
Sun October 14, 11am–6pm
