Sydney is prepared for a bigger Norton Street Italian Festa this year


Sydney is ready to host the 30th annual Norton Street Italian Festa on October 30, and the street festival is going to be bigger and better than ever this year!

The Festa, which attracts over 100,000 visitors in an average per year, offers all things Italian. During the occasion, the organisers will transform the main street of Leichhardt with light, colour, and music. The visitors can expect enjoying entertainment and activities along with getting carried away by aromas of delectable Italian food.

The festival is a family event too; in fact, one of the largest of that kind held in Sydney. It has something for everyone – women, men, and children. Women can pass a good time by roaming around a great range of fashion, produce stalls while kids will have fun with various rides, and interactive play activities. Men who love motorbikes and cars will get to see a display of classic Italian brands such as Lamborghini, Vespa, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Ducati, and Moto Guzzi.


The organisers are expecting to host over 140,000 visitors this year and there will be more than 240 produce and food stalls in the festival to entertain them with authentic Italian food.

In fact, food is a central part of the Festa, and many celebrity chefs do cocking demonstrations. The chefs who are going to join the festival this year are Chef Enzo Guarino, Bryan Gerlini, Paolo Gatto, Francesco Spataro, Luciano & Martino, Chef Oliver, Danny Trimarchi, Vincenzo Prosperi, Luca Ciano, and Chef Mauro. Besides, many Italian nonnas (grandmothers) will also share their traditional family recipes.

The Canterbury & District Soccer Football Association will display soccer activities to meet the demand of the visitors’ rapidly growing interest in the sport. Families interested in the game will have the chance to watch different football demonstrations, join the football clinics program, and find out about different opportunities to play football.
