Celebrations in New Italy

Everyone is warmly invited to the Anniversary celebrations at New Italy, Sunday April 7 for a day of music, dancing, vino, and Italian food.

The day, which marks the arrival of the Italian settlers in Sydney in 1881, will begin at 11am with great friends of New Italy, Val Wills and Cynthia McKeough, on their piano accordions playing in the piazza. A pasta lunch will be served from midday. Back by popular demand is Brisbane-based Domenico Taraborelli who never fails to get the crowd dancing! Bring those dancing shoes!

Don’t miss the talk explaining the fascinating history of New Italy in the Community Hall and join in with the guided tours of the newly renovated Museum. Help will also be on hand to answer genealogy questions about the New Italy settlers and their descendants. Children’s activities will be available in the Pavilion while salami wheels and prizes can be won in the piazza throughout the afternoon. Entry is free with food and drinks available at the Tastes of New Italy café. In addition ,the Casa Vecchia Italian Gift shop will be open, with its stylish homewares, stunning ornaments and  elegant jewellery.
