The Barossa’s social calendar is bursting with events this festive season and beyond. From Shop Barossa and Culture Club to community Christmas parades and twilight Christmas markets, there is something to entertain every member of the family.
What’s On in the Barossa:
Friday, December 9 – Culture Club at Seppeltsfield
Hot off the back of sold out shows and rave reviews across the USA and Australia, Boy George & Culture Club are returning to our shores with the full band to do an encore show at the picturesque Seppeltsfield Winery from 6pm to 11:30pm. Check out our interview with band guitarist and songwriter, Roy Hay, who reflected on the band’s legacy, the tour, and how they are getting along these days.
Friday, December 9 – Summer Sessions at Whistler Wines
Laid-back and just downright what we’re all about here at Glam Adelaide. Good food, music and SA wine. No ticket necessary for this one. Just rock up at Whistler Wines with family and friends ready to kick your feet up as the balmy summer nights set in. Summer Sessions run on the second Friday of every month during summer so don’t worry if you can’t make this one.

Friday, December 9 – Lyndoch Christmas Party
Families, this one is all you guys! If you haven’t caught the Christmas bug yet you better get yourself along tonight from 5pm to 10pm before the madness sets in over the coming weeks. You’ve got a live band, carols, kids entertainment, stalls and even a visit from Father Christmas. It’s all about celebrating this magical time of year and true community spirit.
Saturday, December 10 – Shop Barossa – A Taste of Christmas
When you think of the Barossa Valley, your eyes tend to automatically glaze over as you visualise the smorgasbord of amazing food and wine BUT the region is fast becoming a popular destination for shopping. The streets of Barossa townships will see over 30 retailers offer exclusive Christmas specials this year (alongside delectable local treats of course), making it the perfect stop off two weeks out from the big day.
Sunday, December 11 – Williamstown Christmas Parade
There’s something enchanting about a Christmas parade. Perhaps, it’s nostalgia or the one chance a year we can indulge our inner child. Whatever it is, it’s great. You’ll want to line up at Wood County Christian School, north on Highland Avenue, West on West 8th Street, east on West 5th Street to Tomlinson Park ahead of the action. Word on the street is there will be free hot coco and cookies for y’all during the night from 3pm to 7pm.
Wednesday, December 14 – Carols by Candlelight at Peter Lehmann Wines
Warm up the pipes and get ready to belt out some good ol’ Christmas tunes. Bring all a picnic blanket and a low chair to nestle yourself in and get comfy as the award-winning jazz singer, Kate Fuller takes centre stage. There will a village of food and wine for all to enjoy, so head on down for a 6:30pm start.
CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT AT PETER LEHMANN WINES, Wednesday 14th December 2016.
