Adelaide Fringe: Opening Night Party

Festivals and Celebrations

15 Feb 2019

The summer festival season starts with a bang as we throw a fabulous party including the Adelaide Night Markets, artist performances and the switching-on of our latest light projection project, Yabarra – Gathering of Light.

Live performances on the Music SA (Frusic) and the Fringe caravan stages from 6 pm – 10 pm.

Opening Night will feature our traditional Tindo Utpurndee, or ‘Sunset Ceremony’ to recognise the living culture of the First Nations, pay respect to the spirit of the land and give thanks to elders past and present.

Bar facilities available from our Fringe Beverage partners. Strictly no BYO.
