Gouger Street’s biggest party is back! The annual Shannons Adelaide Rally Gouger Street Party returns this month!

The full Shannons Adelaide Rally field will once again be on display at the free community event with live music and extended outdoor dining along the restaurant strip. The four-day event takes place across the CBD and the regions including Strathalbyn and the Fleurieu Peninsula.

One of the most popular events within the Shannons Adelaide Rally is the Gouger Street Party which is the biggest driver of foot traffic and economic activity in terms of an event to the precinct.

Shannons Adelaide Rally event director Tim Possingham says the pre-party is an essential part of the event. “The Gouger Street Party has been run since 1997, so it’s a really important and highly successful element to the Shannons Adelaide Rally.

“Pre-COVID, the Gouger Street Party attracted the largest influx of people to that precinct of any event, even when comparing it to the likes of Chinese New Year.

“It’s an important economic driver for that precinct; consistently delivering over half a million dollars of economic benefits every year, even doing so during COVID.”

The Gouger Street Party is one of two free city-based community events in the 2022 Shannons Adelaide Rally. The rally concludes with a stage on the Victoria Park section of the VALO Adelaide 500 circuit, four days before the start of the Supercars event.

The Shannons Adelaide Rally Victoria Park Finale combines the final stage of the rally with Formula 1, V8 Supercar and classic car demonstrations, from 3pm to 6:30pm on Sunday November 27.

Adelaide Hills residents will get the chance to the see the Shannons Adelaide Rally across two lunch stops: from 11:30am in Uraidla at the Uraidla Showgrounds on Saturday November 26 and in Strathalbyn at the Soldiers Memorial Gardens on Sunday November 27. Visit for more event information.
