Festival Italiano returns to Newmarket for 2018

Festival Italiano returns to Newmarket for 2018

Auckland’s largest Italian street event is returning to Newmarket on October 28th, bringing with it a celebration of music, food, design and everything celebrating Italian culture.

The Italian Festival season in Auckland begins on the 30th of August with an array of Italian events throughout Newmarket. The largest and highly anticipated event is the Festival Italiano street event that is hosted in Newmarket. Kicking off on October 28 from 11am until 5pm, the event runs through Osborne Street, Kent Street as well as the Rialto Centre.

These areas will be closed off to traffic, making the streets pedestrian friendly to allow festival-goers the opportunity to become immersed in the days activities, pop-up restaurants, stalls and car displays. It is safe to say that Italian food is one of our favourite cuisines so it’s no surprise that there will be plenty on offer at Festival Italiano.

Guests will experience a wide range of al fresco dining restaurants and eating areas, an Italian style market with over 40 stalls. As well as food, there will also be live music and entertainment. The kids will have a blast as well with a speciality kids pavilion, spot prizes and plenty more on the day.

The Festival Italiano 2018 is organised by the Dante Alighieri Society of Auckland in collaboration with the Newmarket Business Association.
