Friendship Festival - Piazza in the Park

1 Oct 2017

Free Event
Spinks Park
131 Molesworth St, Lismore
0428 216 079

The Friendship Festival pays tribute to Lismore’s ‘friendship relationship’ with Conegliano in the Veneto of northern Italy with a marketplace festival in Spinks Park to celebrate the contribution made by Italian settlers to the district over the last 100 years. The Piazza in the Park invites all to come and ‘be an Italian for a day’.

Held on the day after the Lismore's iconic Lantern Parade, the Piazza in the Park features a spectacular variety of musical entertainment from choirs to accordions,  fabulous Italian cuisine, food stalls, Italian themed merchandise, a display of Italian cars and bikes, competitions and Italian conversation so people can actively embrace the culture, food, and art of Italy in the centrally located Spinks Park. The adjacent Historical Society Museum, CWA, and the Croquet Club will also be open.
