FERRAGOSTO IS HERE!



Come along to Great North Road, Five Dock on Sunday, 17 August from 10am-4pm and celebrate as Five Dock comes alive with the taste and sound of Italy, says Mayor Angelo Tsirekas.

“We have another action-packed year of entertainment and activities with everything from dancing, singing, cooking demonstrations, gelato eating competitions, and outdoor Italian cinema,” he said.

FerraCucina will once again host a star-studded lineup of local chefs demonstrating how to prepare some of their favourite Italian dishes. FerraCucina favourites, Angelo’s on the Bay, Tintilla Estate, Gatto Matto Trattoria, Sapori Mediterranean Cuisine, Five Dock Meat Market and Peterson’s Wines  will be returning to the stage this year.

 

“We are delighted to welcome Pina Pacialeo, of Pina Cucina fame, to join us on the FerraCucina stage this year,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

 

Pina decided to start a Youtube channel following many requests from family friends for recipes of her delicious Italian cooking. The videos were a great success with thousands of people tuning in and following Pina as she prepares some of her favourite and traditional recipes.

 

All the Ferragosto favourites are returning for another fun-filled event. The popular Italian car and Ducati display will be lined on Great North Road; gelato eating competitions and trivia will be housed by the post office; 150 market stalls will run along the street, and local acts will perform on Ferrafesta, FerraMusica and FerraGiovani.

 

Ferragosto is brought to you by the City of Canada Bay and is supported by Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre, Canada Bay Club, Cleanaway, Club Five Dock RSL, Inner West Courier, italianicious magazine, Community Relations commission for multicultural NSW, Channel Nine, St George bank, Leichhardt Fiat Alfa and Five Dock Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Canterbury BMW, Adshel and Aqua Source.
