The Garden of Unearthly Delights 2023


"Na Budni Towilla Mullawirra Yerta - Greetings to the Spirit of Place" - Karl Winda Telfer, Senior Kaurna Custodian of Ceremony

The Garden of Unearthly Delights acknowledges that it gathers on sacred Country - 'Mullawirrayerta / Dry Forest Country' and respects the First Nation people's spiritual and cultural connection with their land, sea, sky and country.

The Garden of Unearthly Delights remains unrivalled as Australia's most vibrant and dynamic outdoor festival precinct.

Each year, The Garden of Unearthly Delights team creates a unique festival playground including multiple performance venues, bars, carnival rides, an array of world foods, market stalls, and the most unexpected sideshow surprises.

The Garden of Unearthly Delights began with just one Spiegeltent in 2000. Over the past 21 years, it has evolved into the greatest arts event in town and the heart of Adelaide's summer arts festival season.

The Garden and its exceptional program of arts and entertainment create an electrifying energy throughout the City of Adelaide every summer.

The Garden prides itself on its:

・Exceptional curated program - incorporating theatre, circus, dance, puppetry, physical comedy, family entertainment, stand-up and music.

・World-class temporary venues - supported by a fantastic team of dedicated and passionate staff.

・Magnetism as a destination - We have built a committed audience who trust The Garden's programming and experiment with both old favourites and the latest newcomers.
