Sponsorship & Partnership Opportunities

2023 Packages Now Available

We invite you to partner with us

Welcome aboard a journey celebrating and showcasing the flavors of Italian food, culture, family values, history, whilst embracing and involving the entire local community and businesses to participate in one of the most exciting events in the Cairns Calendar.

Set in the beautiful location of Cairns, the Cairns Italian Festival is a bucket-list destination event that will be on the annual event calendar of foodies from around Australia each and every year. The festival provides a unique opportunity for the community to rethink how the Italian story is told in Cairns by delivering a diverse and unique program of activities that are highly engaging and that reignite inter-cultural and inter-generational community connections.

In our first ever Cairns Italian Festival in 2022, we welcomed 20,000 local and interstate attendees across 12 different events with approximately 12,000 people attending our biggest event, La Festa! Based on this success we envisage an even bigger and better Cairns Italian Festival in 2023!

It is with great pleasure that we offer your organisation a valuable opportunity to join with us in becoming a sponsor of the Cairns Italian Festival and to become part of our beautiful family.
