Over a five day period the people of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford show off to their neighbours and the wider community of Victoria, their pride in the strong links to the Swiss and Italian settlers of the district in the 1850’s.
The Festa also highlights the wide-ranging skills and diversity of the present community and the areas unique environment, still closely linked to “taking the waters” at the numerous mineral springs.
The Festa invites you to join the Ballarat Italian Association and The Sicilian Association of Australia at The Heritage Gathering at Cricket Willow on Sunday and for a night of Italian food and live entertainment at Bellinzonas on Saturday. Book early as over 75 seats have already been sold!
The Ballarat Italian Association is inclusive of people of diverse cultures and aims to foster harmony and friendship through cultural and recreational activities.
