A Taste Of Italy Griffith Is Back This August
Wednesday, 10 May 2023A Taste of Italy Griffith is back for another year, celebrating the best of Italian culture in Griffith. From August 21 to 27, 2023, Griffith will be alive with the sights, sounds, and flavours of Italy, as locals and visitors come together to celebrate the rich heritage of one of the world's most beloved cultures.
Coordinated by Visit Griffith, the festival promises to be a week-long extravaganza of food, music, dance, and entertainment. The festival showcases the best of Griffith’s Italian cuisine, traditions and hospitality with a range of events and experiences taking place throughout the week.
"We are thrilled to bring back the A Taste of Italy Griffith Festivities," said Griffith City Council Events Coordinator, Izabella Apolloni.
"This festival is a celebration of Griffith’s large Italian heritage that has made it what it is today, and a chance for the community to come together and showcase the many authentic Italian experiences that have been passed down from generations before.”
The festival will feature a range of experiences for all ages, including the sold-out favourite ‘Festa Del Salsicce e Salami’ better known as the Salami Festival; Italian Opera in the Garden at Piccolo Family Farm, Italian Gastronomy at Calabria Family Wines, La Tavola Lunga at De Bortoli Wines, a number of other experiences at our local wineries and much more.
On Saturday morning, Banna Avenue will be a hive of activity where you can shop the sidewalk sale, enjoying a coffee and Italian treat while you wander the main street, and don’t forget to check out the many wonderful window displays. Following on from this, check out the salami judging at the Yoogali Club from mid-morning onwards.
“Showcasing the cultural richness and diversity of our region, A Taste of Italy Griffith has become one of our major annual festivals on the Griffith calendar and has been embraced so beautifully by our local community, as they deliver the many events and experiences on the ground, which make up this seven-day program, providing visitors with a memorable time in Griffith,” said Tourism Manager, Mirella Guidolin.
“A Taste of Italy Griffith attracts a mass of visitors each year, from all over Australia, which in turn has a huge economic impact on our wonderful city. Event programs will be available from early July, so pick up your copy or find out what is planned online.”
