Come and join us in celebrating the biggest day of the Italian calendar with the people of Sydney!
More than 20,000 people are expected to celebrate la dolce vita (the sweet life) at the Italian Republic Day Festa at Club Marconi, proudly sponsored by Peter Warren Fiat Alfa.
So what is the day about?
Republic Day, or Festa della Repubblica, marks the day in 1946 that Italians voted to abolish the monarchy and become a republic. It has since become a national holiday and a proud celebration of Italian culture the world over.
The day will begin with a commemorative mass at 11am, followed by the Italian and Australian National Anthems before launching into a spectacular array of carnival rides, Italian vintage car and Ducati motorcycle displays, street performers, kid’s amusements, pony rides and market stalls (come and visit our stand - just look out for 'The Vintage Food Truck' and take advantage of our event 'specials').
There will be a variety of top-class entertainers including, Paolo Rajo and Frank De Bellis Showband, renowned artists Caludio Sandrelli – La Voce Di Napoli, Francesca Pansironi, future Australian superstar, Tony Sergi, The Voice Australia finalist, Danni Da Ros and much more...
Children (and adults) will enjoy the exciting rides including the daring Free Fall, Supertrooper and for the not so daring, Cup and Saucer, the Inflatable World, Mini Chairs & the Train. Children will be given an opportunity to learn (or perfect) their soccer skills with the Western Sydney Wanderers Soccer School!
Make sure you don't leave too early as there will be a spectacular fireworks display to conclude by International Foti Fireworks.
