About Annual Porchetta Day

Annual Porchetta Day celebrates Gunnedah’s identity as one of Australia’s premier food baskets as well as its Italian lineages. The magic day marries the rustic delights of Italian cuisine with the excellent agricultural products of the Gunnedah district - pork from local producers, Italian breads made from local durum wheat, regional wines and condiments crafted from boutique cellars.

Indulge your senses and savour the aromas, flavours and textures of generously basted pork, smooth ricotta cheesecakes, ciabatta and panini breads and gelato all complemented with a cappuccino, fine regional wine or cool Italian beer.

Be transported to Mediterranean lands, as culturally enriched Italian music inspires dance and entertainment, under the many olive trees that adorn the venue’s expansive lawns. Annual Porchetta Day offers entertainment, education and experiences, to be enjoyed by all.

Annual Porchetta Day - it's a little taste of Tuscany in Gunnedah!

North West NSW is an unlikely place to find a buzzing Italian food festival. But, if you decide to amble into Gunnedah - you’ll come across a sea of red, white and green dotted among the swaying, hundred year old olive trees.

Take a closer look and you’ll see the many merry people, local and travelling folk alike, all happily feasting on Italian delights under the warm spring sun.

There will be families lolling on the lush grass, kids burying their faces in bowls of pasta, merriment as the music of the piano accordion ignites the crowd, and all while the aroma of roast pork wafts through the grounds, teasing tastebuds. It’s little taste of Tuscany in the Aussie Bush.

Annual Porchetta Day has grown from a front lawn party, into one of the region’s largest (last year attracting 6000+ people) and most acclaimed Food Festivals. Now, in its seventh year, you can expect all the old favourites, and some exciting new additions. Papa’s cheesecake, succulent pork, pizza, gnocchi and gelato will be available in abundance. After proving you’re King or Queen of the carbs in the Spaghetti eating competition, you can sip on some Prosecco and Tarantella the day away to traditional Italian music.

It’s the ‘Aussie bush’ taste of Italy that you’ve just got to try. Start practicing your Italian, prepping your stomach, we hope to see you in September 2017 for delizioso Italian food, wine and frivolities at the fabulous local festival.
