First Annual Ferragosto Festival

If you love your Italian food you’re going to love this. Presented by Apra Productions, the first annual Ferragosto Festival serves up four amazing Italian courses and five hours of live entertainment. Ferragosto is an Italian and Sammarinese public holiday celebrated on August 15. Although technically running from August 15 through September 1, other than the national holiday on the 15th, it is left up to everyone else how they want to spend the period. As it marks the beginning of the summer holiday period, parts of Italy become virtual ghost towns due to people packing up and holidaying. Anywho, back to local celebrations. Entertainment for the day will be Tony Pantano. The Mondo Music Italian Merchandise Stall will also be coming from Melbourne. Bowl-a-Rama, Geelong – August 24.
