Twilight Fringe on O’Connell Street, Gouger Street Feast and East End Unleashed are set to make Adelaide an even more exciting place to be during Adelaide Fringe.

The three events feature free entertainment, are covid-safe and family-friendly.
Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor said there’s no better time to visit the city and North Adelaide than at this time of year as there’s just so much to see and do during the day and night.

“With an array of unique eateries and bars, and with longer days and warm nights, now is the time to soak up all the activities the city and North Adelaide have to offer,” said the Lord Mayor.

The Eighty-Eight O’Connell site will be transformed into an open-air Fringe venue from 26 February. Enjoy a free program of entertainment as the sun goes down with aerial artists, street theatre, roving artists, fire twirlers and musicians. A pop-up bar is on site for all your refreshments, plus local food and snacks – or grab dinner along O’Connell Street or Melbourne Street and join in the fun afterwards!

Gouger Street Feast is about indulging in the mouth-watering tastes of Gouger Street with late night street dining during Fringe. Outdoor dining will spill out on the streets across two Saturday nights, creating a feast for the senses with live music and delicious food from Gouger Street’s best eateries. Gouger Street will be open to foot traffic until midnight on Saturday 27 February and Saturday 20 March so you can make the most of the festival season with late night dinner and drinks, and Fringe action is just around the corner at Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga.

With East End Unleashed, Rundle Street will be like one big party on Friday and Saturday nights during the Fringe and the fun has already started.
Rundle Street will be open to foot traffic, so you can safely roam down the festival hub. Outdoor dining will be extended until midnight. The East End will be buzzing with the Ebenezer Night Markets and all the action of Adelaide Fringe, Gluttony and The Garden of Unearthly Delights.
