Australian Italian Festival

We are celebrating 28 years of Italian food, wine and culture!

The 2022 Australian Italian Festival will be held from the 4th to 5th of June at the TYTO Parklands in Ingham, North Queensland. This weekend the parklands will be transformed into a full-scale piazza with nonstop, world-class entertainment. Guests will gain access to entertainment, competitions, free amusement rides for the children, market stalls, homemade, mouth-watering Italian food from professional Italian chefs and the best local Italian Nonnas!

Come for the food... stay for the fun!

The Australian Italian Festival is a cultural event that celebrates the Italian culture of the Hinchinbrook Shire. Italian and other European migrants came to the district to work in the sugar industry and to find a better life after the impact of the war. Here they stayed, had families and made the district unique.

It is a celebration of community, resilience, diversity and success. However, it is also a celebration of all great food and entertainment.

Eat, drink, sing… Mangiamo, Beviamo, Cantiamo
