In 2021 the Australian Italian Festival will celebrate its 27th year!
The Australian Italian Festival began after community consultations were called to discuss ideas to strengthen the economic diversity within the growing community of Ingham and the wider Hinchinbrook Shire. The Australian Italian Festival, an artistic and cultural event highlighting the Italian influence on Ingham and North Queensland, grew from this original idea.
The predominant culture in the Hinchinbrook Shire is Italian. This is a result of the many Italian immigrants who came to Ingham in the late 1800's and early 1900's to work in the cane fields, and who stayed to raise their families here in North Queensland. While the Australian Italian Festival's focus is on the Italian culture, it is also inclusive of our First Nations people and other immigrants who have made Ingham and the Hinchinbrook Shire so culturally diverse.
The 2021 Australian Italian Festival will be an authentic cultural event to be held on the first weekend of June, in Ingham, North Queensland. On this weekend, theTYTO Parklands will be transformed into a huge piazza with nonstop world-class entertainment. Guests gain access to entertainment, concerts, competitions, free amusement rides for the children, market stalls, homemade, mouth-watering Italian food from professional Italian chefs and from the best local Italian Nonna's!
