Five Dock Celebrates Ferragosto

Ferragosto (Small)

Five Dock celebrates Italian food and culture every August with Ferragosto, one of Sydney’s premier street fairs.

To coincide with this year’s Ferragosto, there is an exhibition at Five Dock Library of photographs and front pages from Ciao magazine which explores the fun, food and people that help to make Ferragosto such a vibrant street fair.

The exhibition also recognises a publishing milestone for Ciao which this year celebrates ten years of publication.

The photographs are complemented by original posters, programs and ephemera from the Local Studies collection.

Ferragosto this year will be held on Sunday, 17 August. The exhibition continues at Five Dock Library until 31 August 2014.

A selection of photographs of Ferragosto can also be seen on flickr.
