Festa Italiana Manchester is the country’s most exciting and vibrant festival of Italian food, drink and culture. It is a free, weekend-long celebration of all things Italian taking place from 27th to 29th August in Manchester city centre.
Inspired by Manchester’s Italian heritage, as well as the traditional festivals over in Italy, the Festa is all about the community coming together to socialise, enjoy beautiful food, delectable drinks and live music.
The 2019 festival saw 30,000 people descend on the festival piazza on cathedral gardens and this year is all set to be bigger and better than ever before.
Festa Italiana will host special one-off events at the festival piazza – a chance for ticket holders to experience a unique Italian dining adventure right in the heart of the city centre.
The live cookery theatre will showcase a host of Italian chefs and masterclasses from Manchester to Italy and beyond.
