Whether you’re moving to Adelaide, South Australia for work, family or just a change of scenery, we all need to take some time out now and again. No matter what your tastes, you’re sure to find something among Adelaide’s numerous festivals to entertain and amuse. There’s a reason South Australia is called the festival state and this is just a few of them…
WOMADelaide is one of Adelaide’s most expansive festivals celebrating international music, dance and art. This outdoor festival is held annually and runs over 4 days.
If you enjoy knocking back a cold one after a hard day’s work you might like to attend Shutzenfest. A weekend of traditional German music, dancing, food and beer, it hails back to South Australia’s heritage and the large scale emigration of Germans to the state in the 1800’s.
Life is a cabaret, and Adelaide knows it! The Adelaide Cabaret Festival is the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. It runs over a couple of weeks so you’ll have plenty of time to catch an act or two.
Get your heart racing at the Clipsal 500, a V8 supercar racing event. Held over four days there’s plenty of action to be seen. If fast cars aren’t your thing, each night there’s a concert with different acts.
If none of these take your fancy, don’t fret. There’s food and wine festivals both in Adelaide and around the state, there’s theatre and visual arts, there’s music festivals of all flavours. There’s always something happening here in Adelaide!
