Come Visit Mt. Eden
20th February 2013
The Mount Eden Village Business Association present:
VILLAGE ITALIAN FETE
Saturday 29th March 2014
Eden! Come gustare (enjoy, taste, saviour, relish) a
delectable selection of Mediterranean sights and sounds as
Mt Eden transforms into an Italian village for its highly
anticipated annual market day and village fete on Saturday
March 29th 2014!
The Village Italian Fete brings the
spirit of Italia to your doorstep with food, drink,
music and entertainment from 11am-3pm. Walk along this
“stretch” and marvel at the madcap gondoliers,
Fellini-esque circus performers, a selection of food from
some of the establishments within the area and plenty of
“the food of love”: music. Be it a traditional Italian
quartet, Silvio Berlusconi crooning or the fat lady singing.
Opera, no less!
50 businesses in the Mt Eden Village
will get into the Mediterranean spirit; look out for stalls
offering specially priced sale goods as some food-vendors
line the streets of the village ensuring that locals can
soak up Mt Eden’s Italian charms!
Much loved by the local community, this popular event is now marks its third year. Mt Eden Village Business Association select a different country each year as its central theme to focus their festivities around. 2012 brought a certain je ne sais quoi with a French theme, while 2013 honored the multi-cultural Asian community that live, work and enjoy what Auckland has to offer!
