Norton Street Italian Festa 2017
Brush up on your hand gestures — Leichhardt's main drag is once again holding a big ol' party to celebrate Italian food and culture.
Ah, the annual festival of all things Italian — just when I thought I was out, they dragged me back in. Sunday, October 29 marks the day of celebration for the nation that brought us Julius Caesar, Nebbiolo and Dario Argento. This year's incarnation of the street fair is a special one though, as it's celebrating 31 years of the iconic exultation of Mediterranean multiculturalism.
As per usual though, Norton Street will be lined with food vendors ranging from nonnas to professional culinary wizards. The big communal table will be back, and The Royal Hotel's verandah will be in full swing throughout the afternoon. There'll be entertainment, beverages, fashion and the Auto Festa, with as many Ferraris and Lambos as you can shake a cannoli at.
