From ringing in the New Year all over again to watching footy players take to the cricket pitch, we’ve got a heap on in the next fortnight. Here’s what we’re up to.
1. Crush Festival
When: 24–26 January
Where: Adelaide Hills
Parts of the Adelaide Hills may have been ravaged by fire, but there’s still beauty to behold. See for yourself and support the region by heading to the hills for Crush Festival. Take your pick from more than 30 venues hosting events across the region, whether dining at a winery for a delicious degustation dinner or lazing about vineyards with a vino in hand.
2. Australia Day
When: 26 January
Where: All over SA
There’s no better time to come together and reflect on our great land than now. From enjoying a pub meal made from local produce to a traditional Aussie BBQ breakfast, take your pick from a range of events across South Australia to pay tribute to Australia. There’ll be bushfire appeals at most of the events, so keep your eyes peeled.
3. Lunar New Year Street Party
When: 1 February
Where: Chinatown, Gouger St
While many already rang in the New Year a month ago, there’s always room for more celebration. Check out Chinatown’s Adelaide Lunar New Year Street Party to experience live music, market and pop-up food stalls and, of course, the lion dance. Don’t forget: it’s the year of the rat, considered a sign of wealth in Chinese culture.
4. Bushfire T20 Showdown
When: 2 February
Where: Adelaide Oval
It may not be footy season just yet, but don’t let that stop you from pulling out your Crows and Port Power merchandise. Switching the footy for the cricket bat, the rival SA clubs go head-to-head for a showdown of a different kind – the Bushfire T20 Showdown. With the aim to raise funds for the SA Bushfire Appeal, players from Adelaide and Port Adelaide Football Clubs will join some of cricket’s biggest names in a special T20 cricket match.
5. Cellar Door Fest
When: 7–9 February
Where: Adelaide Convention Centre
When it comes to beautiful places to wine and dine, we’re spoilt for choice in South Australia. Now you can explore all 17 of SA’s regions under one roof at Cellar Door Fest. Sip local wine, experience a unique blind tasting of delicious cheeses and do your bit to support our regions.
