South Australia’s newest 100% open-access food and drink festival, the Adelaide Food Fringe, is coming to a close tomorrow, Sunday, May 16.
The 10-day program will have 150 events total, with inclusions such as boozy Never Never gin events and vegan Latin American feasts.
While we’re sad to see it go, we’re also excited for the final day because the festival is closing with some great (and free!) family-friendly events.
Here’s the list of free events on this Sunday:
– Sunday 16 May – The Stag Hotel Food Fringe closing day party – Free Sierra Leonean, Pakinstani and CWA cooking demos + live music from Dusty Lee and Baby Mo.
– Sunday 16 May – Food Secrets at the Green in Norwood – Beer, Wine and Gin tastings, Kids cooking classes, produce market and live music
– Sunday 16 May – Hayes Honey Open day – Local, raw, pure honey direct from the hive! This is your chance to see the beehives, chat with the beekeepers and stock up on honey, honeycomb and beeswax balms.
– Sunday 16 May – Aldinga Community Picnic – BYO picnic + Bush tucker planting with local Kaurna woman Quahlia Newchurch, local food tasting platters, experience the Community Gardens and kids activities
Celebrating and supporting food and beverage businesses, communities and Foodbank (who receive 10% of all net registration fees collected), the new festival presented SA’s food and drink culture in a program of events including special dinners, cultural celebrations, picnics, festivals, exhibitions, talks, cooking classes, wine, gin, beer tastings, tours, food trails, vegan events, breakfasts, future food explorations and more.
Director of The Adelaide Food Fringe Vic Pisani is excited the festival came to fruition after a COVID forced cancellation last year.
“To see 150 events registered, over 20 nationalities represented and so many people embrace and support our festival concept is a really humbling feeling.”
