Melbourne Salami Festa

Dates: 26 Oct 2014

Address: Northcote Town Hall, 189 High Street, Northcote, Victoria 3070


The Melbourne Salami Festa is back in 2014!

Every winter in Australia, in cold garages, sheds or kitchens across almost every suburb in every town or city you will find a family or group of friends toiling away carrying on with an ancient tradition. Salami making. A true 'nose to tail' philosophy where an animal's value is truly appreciated and nothing goes to waste.

The Melbourne Salami Festa's aim is to ensure that this tradition's future is assured and to bring back an important part of the ritual and share it with all of Melbourne.

So if you have ever claimed to make the perfect salami, this is your chance to go head to head with some of the best around. A panel of expert judges will be on hand again this year to decide which is the best salami and on the day of the festa a People's Choice Award will also be voted on and awarded. 

But it's not all about competition. For everybody else there will be plenty of home made Italian cooking, live music, salami making demonstrations as well as a chance to meet the families competing, taste their wares and learn their secrets.
