Adelaide Italian Festival | 12-21 Nov 2021

adelaide italian festival

Adelaide Italian Festival

Celebrate Italy’s world-class food and wine, art, culture and traditions.

The first Italian Festival in Adelaide was held in 1976 in Rundle Mall – a parade made up of migrant families travelled from Victoria Square to Elder Park before ending with celebrations in the Mall itself. The festival has been held in a number of locations over the years and has been a means of inspiring young people to embrace their Italian heritage and for the wider community to experience Italian culture.
