Festitalia 2017

Festitalia 2017

Festitalia is Queensland's Official Italian Festival, under the patronage of the Italian Consulate in Brisbane and the Italian Embassy in Canberra.

It is a community-based event with the involvement of Italian associations, businesses and not-for-profit organisations. Come along to enjoy a wonderful cultural and social experience showcasing Italian style, food and creativity.

In 2017, it will be held on Sunday 8 October in Spencer Park, Newmarket.


In 2016, our club (along with the Fiat car Club) displayed a small number of cars and we will be returning to Festitalia in 2017.

This is one of our more enjoyable car display opportunities as the festival itself is great fun and there is plenty to do and see while your car is on show. Over 30 food stalls will tempt your tastebuds, and you can partake of a glass or two of fine wine or beer while watching the varied entertainment on stage. The amazing Gruppo Storico Fivizzano Flagthrowers are not to be missed!

Festitalai fun...

The Club's attendance is being coordinated by Vice President Keith Faulkner. If you are interested in being part of this year's display, please contact Keith (0403 878 749 - vicepresident@arocaqld.com) as soon as possible. You must do so before 30th September so we can let the organisers know how much space they have to allocate to us. Attendees will be emailed entry instructions prior to the event.

Display cars should plan to arrive between 8.30am and 9:00am; only vehicles that have pre-registerd to display will be allowed entry. This is a public event that attracts large crowds, so it will be unsafe for vehicles to be moving about while people are milling around. For this reason, cars on display are expected to remain on show until approximately 5.00pm.
