Italian festival cancelled
CONTINUING rain has forced the cancellation of today’s Brisbane Italian festival at Newmarket.
Festitalia 2018 was called off yesterday on the advice of the organisers’ workplace health and safety consultant, electrical contractor, venue facilities manager and contractors trying to gain access to Spencer Park.
Organisers said they were disappointed and all pre-pur- chased tickets would be refunded via QTIX.
“Festitalia 2018, the Italian Festival, has been cancelled due to wet weather and related safety concerns,” they said.
“We know this will disappoint many who were planning a wonderful day of food, music and Italian culture. The welfare of vendors, performers and patrons remains the priority.”
