Saturday 29th March 2014

Ciao Mt 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!

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!

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose
