Salami Festival - Festa del Salsicce
Pioneer Park Museum, Remembrance Drive, Griffith NSW 2680
Sunday 25 August 2019 Griffith celebrates the traditions of annual salami making on the last Sunday of August at the Festa del Salsicce - a much celebrated salami competition.
Keeping true to her Italian ancestry - salami making weekends in Griffith continue to thrive. During June and July, once the weather turns cold, family members make the pilgrimage home to continue the tradition of making salamis for the family using the tightly held familia recipe.
The Salami Festival celebrates the home salami makers and attracts people and entries from all across Australia. The competition started among friends many years ago when friendly rivalry decided there should be a winner. Salamis are today judged by an expert panel. Salamis are part of the rustic Italian luncheon complete with local wine and live music.
