LisAmore! celebrates and acknowledges the contribution Italians have made to the Northern Rivers region over the past 135 plus years.
This will be the sixth festival. Initially created to strengthen the sister-city ties Lismore has with northern Italy the event has grown and now embraces their love of all things Italian including its language, food, culture, vehicles and people bringing the whole community together.
