The traditional Sardella Day 2022 festival took place with great success on Sunday, September 18 at the Mytilenian House in the Sydney suburb of Canterbury.

An event inextricably linked to tradition, the sea and fishermen, the Sardella Festival was revived under the initiative of the Mytilenian Brotherhood of Sydney & NSW.
