What’s On – Adelaide, South Australia

With the promise of great weather and some of the world’s best events and festivals, no wonder so many people make it a ritual to visit Adelaide around March every year. Adelaide is one of the world’s most liveable cities and home to some of the world’s best wine, but what a lot of people don’t realise is we also do world class events and festivals incredibly well.

Although we have some amazing events in January and February, including the cycling spectacular of the Santos Tour Down Under and the World Tennis Challenge, one of the best times to be in Adelaide is March. March in Adelaide is thriving with all kinds of events and festivals featuring everything from music at the Womad Festival, comedy Fringe Festival, theatre and arts at the Festival of the Arts, to V8 supercars at Clipsal 500 and horse racing. Adelaide’s events continue through into winter with the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and more. For a calendar of events please click here.
