Ferragosto Italian Street Festival

Sun 18th August, 2019
Great North Road, Five Dock
One of the world’s most popular bilingual comedians, a Home and Away star turned singer-songwriter, and of course, plenty of la dolce vita.

The Ferragosto Italian street festival is returning to Five Dock in the inner west for its 22nd year. Immerse yourself in Italian culture with live entertainment, shopping and whole lot of Italian food.

More than 300 retailers and food stalls will be dishing up top-notch Italian bites, including plenty of pasta, pizza and cannoli. The makeshift Italian piazza, FerraPiazza, will help you feel as though you’re in Italy, with ravioli, gelato and wine tasting.

Musician and former Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo will perform, as will one of the world’s most popular bilingual comedians, Joe Avati. A kitchen stage will host gnocchi demonstrations, blind gelato tastings, and cannoli and pasta-eating competitions.

You can also expect performances from local dancers and musicians, pizza-spinning demos, and free amusement rides.

From 10am to 4pm.
