The Big Spaghetti

Food, family, fun: what could be more Italian?

We’re taking pasta back to its street-food origins in a big stand-up event that combines the bustle of hawker markets with the family-friendly and community ethos of Italian street fairs in a celebration of every strand of spaghetti and every forkful of cacio e pepe. Throw in some live music and a healthy splash of wine for good measure and you’ve got a real mambo Italiano on your hands.

Join some of Australia’s very best Italian eateries and bars at this feast for the whole family.
