Get ready Adelaide, this is your chance to experience the vibrant and electric atmosphere that Indonesia has at this year’s Indofest Adelaide.

Since 2004, the Adelaide Indofest has set the city alight with dynamic sights, sounds and enticing flavours.

Indofest Adelaide 2023 Committee Member Aldin Shauki is incredibly excited to bring this event back in full pre-covid force this year.

“This celebration happens every two years so since covid happened, we haven’t had an Indofest in full capacity for a long time,” said Aldin.

“This year everyone can look forward to a huge celebration of all things Indonesian, from the food and drinks to the music and dance – it’s an incredible atmosphere.”

The Adelaide Indofest is a free and family-friendly event that presents an exciting program of traditional and contemporary Indonesian music and dance. Along with children’s dance and craft workshops, cooking demonstrations, a marketplace and exhibitions representing the regional diversity of the Indonesian archipelago.

Indofest-Adelaide is a collaborative effort that represents all of South Australia’s Indonesian community groups and is presented by the not-for-profit Australian-Indonesian Association of South Australia (AIASA) which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017 of promoting Indonesian culture in South Australia.

This year there is set to be an exciting business expo at the event that will aim to foster relationships between Indonesian and South Australian businesses. There will be plenty to see and learn about at this expo with a range of overseas businesses in participationfor this one-day-only event.

This business expo is set to include pop-up stalls from Flinders University, BPKM (Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal, translated: Investment Coordination Board) and the Indonesian Investment Promotion Centre.

“We’ve got so many exciting things happening this year that we can’t wait to share with everyone,” Aldin said.

“A lot of people don’t know much about Indonesian culture and are curious, this event is a playground for knowledge, with plenty of fun things to do and see while also learning a lot in the process.”

“We’re excited to welcome vendors such as Pondok Daun Restaurant. Hello Indo, Ninin Indo Street Food, Potato on a Stick, Warung Barokah and Waroeng Noni just to name a few.”

Graze on incredible food as you watch cultural performances play out in front of your eyes across the entire day, with plenty of vendors already confirmed and more to come, guests can expect to be spoilt for choice.

Performers on the day includes Adelaide-based band Midnight Melody, Indonesian-Australian songwriter based in Adelaide Melisa Lestira, (traditional Angklung musical group Adelindo Angklung and cooking demonstrations hosted by Ellis Robb.

Support from the SA community is paramount for an event such as this one to run, and each year a large group of volunteers continue to show up to support the vibrant community.

This family-friendly event is perfect for the young and the older, with fun activities for everyone to enjoy including live performances, informative expos, incredible local foods and much, much more.
