The Italian market will feature classic fresh produce such as cheese, olive oil, bread, pasta, flowers and fruit and vegetables, as well as a range of Italian products.
There'll be non-stop entertainment throughout the day. Primo's resident DJ will play Italian music at the Primo Beer Garden of the Lord Roberts Hotel and popular Italian performers, big bands and crooners will entertain on the main stage. Watch out for the roving musicians and Commedia Del Arte performers.
The Fiat Punto, the car that took Europe by storm, will make a guest appearance at the festival - celebrating the arrival of Fiat's passenger cars down under. The Alfa 159 and Brera coupe will also be displayed.
Festival-goers will also be able to book a free guided tour around the area to learn how Italian culture has influenced the City's buildings and landmarks.
Stanley Street developed its reputation as a simple, cheap café strip following a wave of Italian post-War migrants who settled in the area and opened businesses.
The Primo Italiano Ambassador is legendary restaurateur Beppi Polese, whose restaurant Beppi's has been in Stanley Street since 1956.
Primo Italiano will celebrate Beppi's 50 years in East Sydney.
Get down to Primo Italiano for a taste of la dolce vita.
