Kumangka Palti Yarta – Welcome Ceremony

Community Event

12 Feb 2023 Once Only Event

To mark the imminent opening of the 2023 festival, Adelaide Fringe invites you to join the Welcome Ceremony at the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Gardens on Sunday 12 February.

Hear from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Elders and leaders, as they share their story of connection to Country and participate in a smoking ceremony, to acknowledge the ancestors and pay respect to the land and waters on which we gather.

Gather your friends, family and a picnic rug on the lawn just before sunset for a beautiful ceremony involving multiple locally-based First Nations groups. This free event is for everyone and all are welcome. The event will be livestreamed to Facebook Live at 5pm ACDT.

Important information:
Please bring a picnic rug or low chair if you wish. There is plenty of accessible seating on the concrete paved areas. Please note this is not a performance, it is a cultural ceremony, and we ask you to please be respectful at all times.
