an italian festival comes to newmarket this weekend

Calling all Italians, Italian lovers, and people who love Italian food (so everyone really!?) Coming to Newmarket this Sunday is Festival Italiano—a celebration of all things Italian. Pasta, pizza, gnocchi, ravioli, lasagne and panini con mozzarella are only some of what will be on offer at this year’s festival. And, you’ll be dining in the true Italian way—al fresco.

This is the must-attend event of the weekend (month? Year?) if you consider yourself a foodie in any way, shape or form!

Aside from the food though, you’ll get to immerse yourself in all things Italian—think Ferrari’s, an authentic Italian market featuring over 40 stalls, live music, activities to keep the kids entertained, spot prizes throughout the festival—and even the chance to win a trip to Italy! Mama mia!

Last year the festival hit the big time, with around 10,000 people turning up to embrace all things Italian, and so it’s only natural that this year will be even bigger and better. So, make this most of this once-a-year event and head along to Newmarket this Sunday for what promises to be an epic day out.
