Saturdays Wine & Food Festa
Following the 9.00a.m Mass and procession for St. Anthony of Padua in the Piazza, a full day of entertainment is planned with some traditional Italian music from IGiovanotti and a host of other entertainers. Local Vicentini, Calabrese and Savoy Soccer Clubs will again be joining other local businesses in providing a great variety of traditional Italian food matched by wines from Alpine Valley Vigneron members and chestnuts from Chestnuts Australia. Cooking demonstrations by local Nonni and Stefano Manfredi will again be in St Pauls Church Hall so be early as doors close when the hall is full.
Sundays program is also full with the Ols School Museum historical display, local Trentino showcasing food from their home region in Italy followed by an outdoor play "Venice in Love". Sport is also big on Sunday with a friendly Bocce competition and the well known 'La Fiera Cup' soccer challenge at the Myrtleford Savoy Soccer Club.
