The Norton Street Italian Festa - Where You Can Be Italian for a Day.
On the last Sunday in October more than 140,000 visitors are expected to fill Norton Street in Leichardt, the heart of Sydney’s ‘Little Italy’, for Italian food and entertainment, and enjoy being Italian for a day at the 31st annual Norton Street Italian Festa.
Festa is a special family and community day for people of all backgrounds. Italians say, 'There are only two kinds of people - Italians and those that wish they were'. Both will be at Festa.
From 10am to 5pm Norton Street will be completely transformed by colour, sound and the cooking aromas of great Italian food, and by street activities and on-stage entertainment celebrating all things Italian.
