Great North Road, Five Dock from 10am to 4pm.
Ferragosto is the City of Canada Bay's largest and most popular community
festival attracting over 50,000 people. It has grown in the fifteen years
since its inception from a local celebration of the Italian heritage of
Five Dock, to a premier event in the social calendar of the inner west of
Ferragosto is named after an annual Italian holiday celebrated in August to
honour the ascension of the Virgin Mary to heaven.
The festival features three stages, entertaining audiences with Italian
inspired music and dancing. Headlining the Main Stage is internationally
acclaimed singer Tony Pantano who will perform a combination of rock, pop,
Latin, R&B, contemporary and opera. The Kids Stage will keep the little
ones entertained with a line up of dancers, Taekwondo demonstrations, music
and the Italian favourite Pinocchio and Gepetto, while the Home Grown Stage
features local dancers and musicians.
