For the eighth year Adelaide Showgrounds will play host to the largest Multicultural Eid Festival in South Australia, taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of May.
The festival gives South Australians the long-awaited chance to experience global cultures and traditions in their own backyard amidst the international travel ban.
As a well-established part of Adelaide’s event calendar for almost a decade, the not-for-profit community event continues to bring cultural diversity to the city and provides the perfect day out for all the family, whether you’re celebrating the end of Ramadan, or a non-muslim Australian looking to experience Muslim culture and sample deliciously authentic food first-hand.
The festival will feature over 15 food vendors offering a number of delicacies set to take visitors on a taste journey across the globe, from the comfort of their own city. There’ll
also be no shortage of family entertainment with the Showground providing rides, bouncy castles, animal farms as well as a number of cultural activities throughout the festival celebrations.
Event manager, Alaa Sebahi, looks forward to reopening the festival after a hiatus in 2020 due to COVID restrictions.
“Our unique festival is one of the largest multicultural events in Adelaide, typically attracting over 15,000 visitors a year who are keen to learn about new cultures, taste incredible food or browse our colourful market stalls that offer everything from homewares to clothing,” she says.
Tickets start at $5 for a two-day entry pass, ranging to $35 for single-day entry, including unlimited rides throughout the day.
