Outdoor dining will be extended onto streets and footpaths in the East End until midnight every weekend during Adelaide Fringe.

The City of Adelaide has expanded its East End Unleashed initiative to allow festival goers and the hospitality sector to soak up the festival atmosphere in a fun and safe environment.

For the duration of the Fringe, Rundle Street, Ebenezer Place, Vardon Avenue and the adjacent sections of Frome Street, East Terrace, and Rundle Road will be closed to traffic every Friday and Saturday night, as well as during the day on Sundays.

Lord Mayor Jane Lomax-Smith said the East End is the perfect place for people to enjoy dinner and drinks in an alfresco setting, right in the thick of the action.

“In addition to making the most of the summer atmosphere with on-street dining, people will enjoy our world class buskers, musicians and magicians along Rundle Street and surrounds,” said the Lord Mayor.

“This year we are also closing Rundle Street (between East Terrace and Frome Street) from 11:00 am on Sundays so more people can enjoy a relaxed Sunday lunch on the street while supporting our fantastic East End traders.”

The Exeter’s Dan Boundy looked forward to the busy weeks ahead.

“We’re hoping for a busy Fringe season this year and are very excited about the extra activity we will see on Rundle Street every Friday and Saturday night and every Sunday afternoon from midday,” said Dan.

East End Unleashed starts this weekend and will run every weekend until Sunday, 19 March.
