What’s on in Adelaide this January 26

Here are some of the events taking place in Adelaide this January 26 public holiday.

Australia Day falls on a contentious date for our country, a date Glam Adelaide believes should be changed.

This January 26, take the time to reflect on Australia’s history, and show respect for one another’s stories, our nation, and its people.

The Australia Day Council of South Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Jan Chorley, says this year’s Australia Day theme is encouraging South Australians to, “Reflect, Respect and Celebrate. The Story of Us.”

“We invite South Australians to reflect on this great land and its people as we embrace the spirit of Australia Day 2021,” she says.

“We reflect and pay respect to our First Nations peoples, we will honour our essential workers who have risked their lives to save ours and celebrate the diversity of who we are, our spirit and endless optimism as we look into the future.”

However, we are all about supporting South Australian businesses and people, so if you’re looking for something to do today, here’s some of the events happening across our great state.
