Ciao and Welcome from the 2022 President, Steve Cordenos

“As the inaugural president I am greatly thankful to lead this amazing committee and team to showcase the Italian way of life to the broader North Queensland Residents. To stage such an event comes a massive commitment of time, devotion, and hard work from the entire committee. We are blessed to have a young and vibrant committee driving this Cairns Italian festival so that for generations to come this will be an event that will attract thousands of people celebrating our multi enriched way of life and to never forget our forefathers that come before us. The many hours invested to put such a big week together is all volunteered and let me assure you everyone is focused to stage an event for all North Queensland to be very proud of.”

“We are proud and passionate Australian Italians that want to give Cairns an event that will enrich and engage the community and businesses as one. What an opportunity to showcase Cairns as a holiday destination while enjoying the celebrations of the Cairns Italian Festival!
