IT’S on again, the Mirboo North Italian Festa,
to be staged on Saturday, February 11, 2018
but organisers say they wouldn’t be able to
do it without the major grant from the South
Gippsland Shire Council.
A regular at the shire’s annual community
grants presentations, last month, the committee
of the Festa was back again to collect a cheque
from the shire for $8000; a nice little sum.
“It’s a great event and we’ve got some re-
ally exciting things happening this year but we
couldn’t do it without the shire’s support and
not just financially,” said committee member
The funds go towards a total project cost of
Gippsland has a rich heritage of Italian mi-
gration and contribution to all facets of life as
evidenced at the Gippsland Immigration Wall of
Recognition in Morwell.
Italian migrants have left their mark across
the region, including in South Gippsland, in
many areas such as agriculture, industry, con-
struction, the arts, education, sport, hospitality
Mirboo North became the destination for
many of these migrants in the 1950s offering
opportunities for a new and more prosperous
future in a foreign land.
There is no other festival like this in the local
region and what better way to understand and ap-
preciate the culture, history and traditions of our
region’s Italian ancestors and community mem-
bers than through sharing stories, knowledge,
food, displays, entertainment and activities?
The Italian Festa’s continuing aim is to provide
a fun, enjoyable, low-cost family oriented day with
free entertainment for all ages and backgrounds.
And even last year, when it rained for most of
the day, the festa was still fantastic. Don’t miss it.

The Arty Gras has been running successfully
for a period of 10 years and the plan is to build

thinking caps on and stay tuned for more infor-
mation, coming soon.
