You've missed this event

Are you a lover of lasagne, an arancini aficionado, a fusilli fanatic or all of the above? If so, then Manchester’s Festa Italiana will be right up your street. Hosted by the North Western city’s Italian community, this free festival promises to showcase all things great about inimitable Italy.

Cathedral Gardens will be transformed into the ‘Festival Piazza’ where the weekend’s main events will be taking place, from 11am to 11pm each day. At Italian festivals the community comes together to socialise, enjoy great food, great drink and live music and at the Festa Italiana it will be no different. The focus will be on cuisine but the festival is all about bringing a real, Italian party atmosphere to Manchester, celebrating with events and entertainment for all ages.

Highlights include authentic Italian produce market, live cookery demos, Nonnas pasta making workshops, a 50 metre pizza, street food, Aperol Spritz Cocktail Bar, live music and face painting for kids!
