Festitalia Italian Festival



$10 for adults, $6 for concessions, children under 12 free available through Festitalia

They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, but in this case you can pay a cheeky visit. Say Ciao to Festitalia, Brisbane’s biggest and best Italian festival.

Festitalia is pretty much like a portal to the motherland where you can savour Italy and its traditions right in your backyard. The food sitch is obviously next level – more than 30 flavour-makers will celebrate with Italian-inspired stalls and pop-ups offering authentic espresso, pasta, pizza, and calamari to cannoli, gnocchi and Nutella doughnuts, granita to Italian meatballs, and more. And in breaking culinary news – there will be cannoli and gelato eating competitions as well as Nonna’s slipper toss!

The whole day is dedicated to celebrating the richness of the Italian culture in its entirety – from the spirit and passion of its people to the romance of its language, its inimitable fashion, the radiance of its arts to the luscious wines and regional dishes acclaimed the world over. Indulge in entertainment in many forms – from flagthrowing to pizza acrobatics (yes, that’s a thing) plus singing and dancing, everyone is going to be having an amazing time.

It’s a great day out to indulge your senses and take a trip away from Brisbane. Bellissimo!
