The Big Spaghetti

Presented by Vetta Pasta

11am-8pm Saturday 28 August and 11am-5pm Sunday 29 August

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, talks and demonstrations from guest chefs, a pasta playground for the kids and a healthy splash of wine for good measure and you’ve got a real mambo Italiano on your hands.

The Big Spaghetti is presented by Vetta, and they're coming to the party in a big way with showbags of pasta and flour free for the first 1,000 keen home pasta cooks to drop by their stand each day.

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

Featuring 20 great pasta dishes across 10 stalls from the likes of:

- Al Dente
- Cafe Paci
- Lagotto
- Marameo
- Massi
- Park Street Pasta
- Pastore
- Tipo 00
- Trattoria Emilia
and more, with cocktails by
- Bar Americano

Plus prosecco, pinot grigio, arneis, Nonna Gisella sangiovese, La Volpe nebbiolo and brachetto from King Valley champions of Italian winemaking, Pizzini.

The Big Spaghetti takes place in E Shed and Queen Street at Queen Victoria Market on the second weekend of the Winter Edition. Entry is free, with food and drinks available to purchase from bars and pop-up stalls from 11am to 8pm on Saturday 28 August and 11am to 5pm on Sunday 29 August (or until sold out). The event is cashless, with contactless payments thanks to Mr Yum; please bring along your credit/debit card.
