Ferragosto 2021

Ferragosto is back in 2021!

This year Ferragosto is returning to Five Dock.

After celebrating Ferragosto online in 2020, we look forward to bringing the festival back in-person as we celebrate Italian food, culture and heritage in one of Sydney’s most cherished Italian precincts.

The 24th festival this year will return to a more familiar format as an outdoor public event and will be planned and produced in line with the most up to date COVID safe guidelines.

Ferragosto 2021 will look a little different, with the festival taking place over a number of days and locations (COVID event restrictions permitting). You can look forward to all the regular elements of the event with a programme of performances across a series of stages, a kitchen stage for demonstrations, a range of stalls, funfair and children’s activities.

With over 120,000 visitors to Ferragosto in 2019, and over 110,000 in 2018, this year promises to be a fantastic and exciting festival as we continue the unbroken 23 year history of Ferragosto.



Stallholder applications will be available shortly.
