  1. I wonder how the ‘Viva Italia’ fest wll go? You know, I don’t think the general public outside Wang would see the city as remotely Italian in heritage, style & appearance. It’s not exactly like Tuscany … or Lygon Street, Carlton. Good luck though to the organisers.

    • I agree that the general public outside Wang would not see the city as remotely Italian in heritage, style & appearance but a lot of the events around Wangaratta are not tourism oriented, they are community or cultural events targeting specific interest groups. If fact, I can’t see a single event above targeting tourism.

      The ‘Cultural Capers’ newsletter is build from information provided by event organisers. Maybe, the tourism associations have not yet utilised the Council’s events newsletter

  2. I think the ‘Viva Italia’ festival is aimed at attracting tourists, Greg. It’s a new event and it’s struggled for community support – even from the Italian community!

    The La Fiera event (in Myrtleford) is also clearly aimed at attracting tourists. Noel Stone is organising it and, again, it’s about using the Italian heritage of the town as the drawcard. I think it too might struggle to pull a crowd because the underlying problem is that Myrtleford is not attractive to tourists. Noel’s got a lot of sponsorship for it though.
