“In SA we are extremely lucky to be able to run and enjoy events like this and collaborate with like-minded venues to bring to life awesome consumer experiences in Adelaide” he says. 

You can bet we are planning on making the absolute most of it and will be putting on one hell of a show, while ensuring all the necessary precautions are taken to ensure a COVID safe event for all”. 

Sharing their love of American whisky, the Gilbert Place establishments will be creating a collection of whisky-based cocktails to warm up the winter temperatures, a killer lineup of live local music talents and foodies will be delighted with a bourbon-inspired BBQ by Rik’s Grill. 

Entering through King William Street, next to the Mayfair Hotel, there’ll be crackling wood fires (essential for an al fresco winter party) as well as a menu of American dishes from Shotgun Willies and a whole host of carnival parlour games and prizes. 

The Friday and Saturday night events will kick off from 5pm until midnight, with a day session available on the Sunday starting at midday, offering a foodie focus perfect for your weekend family entertainment. 

For those looking to get involved in the Western themed prizes will be handed out for ‘best dressed’ so dig out that cowboy hat from your dressing up box for a chance to win the coveted crown.
