Ferragosto 2019

Sydney's Italian street festival returns.

The close ties between Italy and Australian can't be ignored. Italians love pasta and wine, and we also love pasta and wine, after all. Accordingly, what better way to celebrate this joyful union than to head along to an Italian street festival on your Sunday.

Returning for 2019, Ferragosto will bring a solid dose of Italian culture, food and general entertainment to Sydney's Five Dock on Sunday, August 18, with over 150 food stalls hawking street eats and handmade goodness (including Pasticceria Papa's famed ricotta cheesecake), as well as dance and music across five stages. Aussie singer and former Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo will headline alongside comedian Joe Avati — and if you've ever wished you were cruising across Florence on a vespa, there'll be a bunch of fancy Italian vehicles on display.

Last year's event drew more than 100,000 people, so it seems that the people of Sydney enjoy Italian culture a fair amount: and with this being Ferragosto's 22nd birthday, the obsession doesn't seem to be fading. What's to argue with when it comes to pizza and cannoli, really?

Ferragosto runs from 10am–4pm.
