Experience the fun and games of the Festa
In 2020 the Australian Italian Festival will celebrate its 26th year.
The Australian Italian Festival began in 1995 after community consultations were called to discuss ideas for economic diversity within the growing community of Ingham. The Australian Italian Festival is an authentic Italian cultural event held on the first weekend of August in Ingham, North Queensland.
The Festival is an artistic and cultural Festival highlighting the Italian influence on Ingham and North Queensland and their involvement in the Sugar Industry. There were many immigrants who came to Ingham in the late 1800's and early 1900's to work in the cane fields and stayed to raise their families here in North Queensland.
The Festa area is transformed into a huge piazza with nonstop world-class entertainment on two stages. 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 Nonnas!

We have our own beautiful Signorinas moving around the Festival to assist you with any information or directions on both days of the Festival. They will also have goodies to handout to the children.
