  • be specific, finalised and confirmed prior to submission. Events with dates or locations yet to be announced cannot be listed.

All content submitted including images, are subject to review by our editors. Please allow 5 working days for this process to take place. 

Our editors review submissions to ensure each listing meets the guidelines and is consistent with City of Adelaide’s style. This helps ensure high quality content for the community and your event.
