    Festa Della Salsicce

    Held each August, the Festa Delle Salsicce (Festival of the Sausage), is organized and run by the Griffith Italian Museum and Cultural committee, and has become a popular event firmly entrenched in the annual calendar of festivities in Griffith. During the festival, a team of 16 local judges, representing different regions of Italy, announce the winner of the competition from about 90 salamis entered. In determining the best salami, judges will look at the overall taste, texture and colour the day before the festival, where the winners will be announced.
