With less then ten days until this year’s Steggles La Festa, Griffith is preparing to host visiting friends and relatives from across the region and both inter and intrastate as they make their way home to reunite with loved ones and enjoy the annual Griffith Easter Party.

Alongside Major Sponsors Steggles and Griffith City Council, the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, is proud to support Griffith La Festa as part of its Regional Flagship Events Program.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “Tourism is vital to the economy of Regional NSW, and our Regional Flagship Events Program helps events like Griffith La Festa attract visitors from across NSW and around Australia.”

“In the year ending September 2014, Regional NSW experienced more than 50 million international and domestic visitors, delivering up to $13.3 billion in overnight visitor expenditure. 

I encourage visitors to the region to take some time out to explore this wonderful part of NSW and everything the Riverina has to offer,” Ms Chipchase said.

Steggles La Festa will take place on “Easter Saturday” 4th of April from 10am – 6.30pm in Memorial Park, Griffith. There will be a full program of live music and entertainment across two festival stages, traditional Italian cooking demonstrations, children's activities and amusements and a great variety of food and wine produced within the parameters of the region.
