SA is known as the Festival State for a reason! The City of Adelaide plays host to an incredible range of festivals every year, with something to suit all tastes.
There is a huge range of arts festivals throughout the year, most conspicuously during Mad March, when the ever expanding Fringe Festival and Adelaide Festival of the Arts take place. The world music festival WOMADelaide also takes place in March.
It doesn't stop there though! Make sure to check out SALA, a state-wide visual arts festival held annually in August, or the Cabaret festival occurring every year in June.
Alongside arts is our massive slate of cultural festivals!
For those hoping to learn more or reconnect with Australia's indigenous history and culture, Spirit Festival takes place in March every year.
Feast Adelaide Queer Cultural Festival also shows off the best of the LBGTIQ community every year in November.
Food and Drink
Once you've worked up a hunger on all the above, gorge yourself on one of Adelaide's incredible food festivals!
Check out the Food and Wine Festival for a taste of what makes SA a gastronomic hotspot, head along to Cheesefest, billed as "Australia's premier cheese experience," or take a dip into Tasting Australia, a huge festival based around Australian produce and cuisine.
And for those with a sportier inclination, Adelaide's got you sorted as well.
Or, if you're after some pedal power, you can't miss the Tour Down Under, Australia's biggest pro-cycling event.
But if you're looking to get right back to basics, get along to Adelaide's 3 Day International Equestrian Event, showcasing the best of the equine world.
