Glenelg Winter Arts Festival returns this July with an exciting program

The Glenelg Winter Arts Festival makes its triumphant return to the Glenelg shoreline, offering an exciting array of events.

The Glenelg Winter Arts Festival is returning this winter with an exciting array of events set to transform the popular coastal spot into a hub of creativity and entertainment.

From July 5th to the 21st, Glenelg’s prime reserve will showcase an exciting program, featuring a diverse lineup of ticketed shows and undercover spaces, ideal for enjoying delicious food and drinks with friends and family.

There will be live performances, culinary delights, and a bar featuring a bespoke winter drinks selection, all set against the backdrop of crackling fire pits and charming big-top tents.

Within these cozy, heated venues, immerse yourself in headlining stand-up comedy acts, circus spectacles, burlesque displays, and family-friendly shows.

Whether you’re seeking a memorable night out with friends, a romantic date night, or an adventure for the entire family during the school break, the Glenelg Winter Arts Festival guarantees an unforgettable experience this July.

“After last year’s overwhelming success, we are thrilled to bring back Glenelg Winter Arts Festival with a fresh lineup of acts and entertainment. Festival-goers can expect the same signature atmosphere that made last year’s event so special, with even more surprises and delights in store. This year promises to be
bigger, better, and more unforgettable than ever before,” Director of Gluttony, Elena Kirschbaum said.

Delve into the enchanting soundscape of the festival’s music program, boasting an impressive lineup of artists set to mesmerise and entertain.

From the comedic genius of Wil Anderson and Geraldine Hickey to the performances of Rouge and Dom Chambers, prepare to be enchanted. Experience the melodies of Prinnie Stevens, feel the energy of Millicent Sarre, and be amazed at the breathtaking acrobatics of Circus the Show.

Tash York will captivate audiences with her unique style, while guests can groove to the rhythms of “Wonderfull! A Celebration of Stevie Wonder,” and witness physical theatre with Fool’s Paradise. With such an exciting lineup, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

“Glenelg is perfectly positioned to host a winter festival once again, with so much to enjoy – before and after seeing a show. We cannot wait to welcome back crowds to the second edition of the Glenelg Winter Arts Festival which will again be Adelaide’s hottest event this July,” City of Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson said.

“It’s so easy to jump on a tram from the city and arrive in the heart of Glenelg at Moseley Square. Take a stroll over to Colley Reserve, grab a bite to eat along the way on Jetty Road and then enjoy a fantastic line-up of live shows including comedians, burlesque and circus performers.

“The thing I love most is that this is more than just an arts festival – it’s a place to make memories, escape the chill of winter with warm company and experience the best of Glenelg. It’s inclusive and accessible to everyone. This year, we have some new events too – free Teddy Bears Picnic and a Dogs Day Out. And as the performance space has been doubled
this year, that means double the fun!”
