Adelaide Fringe: Opening Night Party

15 Feb 2019
6:00 PM - 11:00 PM


The summer festival season starts with a bang as we throw a fabulous party including the Adelaide Night Markets, artist performances and the switching-on of our latest light projection project, Yabarra - Gathering of Light.

Live performances on the Music SA (Frusic) and the Fringe caravan stages from 6 pm - 10 pm.

Opening Night will feature our traditional Tindo Utpurndee, or ‘Sunset Ceremony’ to recognise the living culture of the First Nations, pay respect to the spirit of the land and give thanks to elders past and present.

Bar facilities available from our Fringe Beverage partners. Strictly no BYO.

An accessible drop off/pick up point is available from 6pm to 12am, located on Frome Road at the intersection of War Memorial Drive, closest to North Adelaide.
