There’s no doubt about Goody Road, Goodwood; It truly is an alive and vibrant little precinct.
There’s new art on the road (including dino-art on the primary school fence), they’re calling for artists to exhibit in “SALA in the Heart of Goodwood”, and they’ve embraced the Adelaide Food Fringe with special events the next two Saturday nights.
This Saturday a “Taste of Goodwood” hub will be under the fairy lights in front of the primary school serving up some complimentary tastings Goodwood has to offer from 5:30-7pm. After whetting your appetite with some of the road’s favourites, you’re encouraged to visit one of the many restaurants on Goodwood Road. Thai, Nepalese, Indian, South American and Vietnamese are among the cuisines on offer, many with bonuses for the night.
And if you get there early, you could score a Great Goodwood Voucher.
“It’s our own version of the Great State Voucher scheme,” says Goodwood Road Business Association Chairperson Shane Chamings.
“We want to support our businesses, so Round 1 of the scheme will see the first 20 people who turn up on Saturday night receive a $20 voucher (one per group) to spend at one of our participating restaurants on that Saturday night.”
There will also be entertainment with Ghanaian singer-songwriter Manadi Lopa performing.
The following Saturday night, Candela Latin American Food will also be celebrating Adelaide Food Fringe with a night of Venezuelan and Spanish tapas and cocktails.
Then there’s SALA. Once again, Goodwood Road as a whole has registered as a venue for the South Australian Living Artists Festival and is now calling for artists to exhibit their work during August. This will be the 6th year of the Road’s involvement in SALA, with many of its restaurants, cafes and shops displaying artist’s work.
