Gather the family for some winter fun this July at the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival.
There’s something for everyone with show rides, side shows, animal nurseries, giant games, circus entertainers, camel and pony rides available for the whole family.
Grab a bite to eat with a wide variety of food trucks serving all of your fairground favourites including wood fire pizza, burgers, desserts and drinks.
Slow down and take a break from the rides and browse a variety of market stalls offering woollen hats, preserves, jewellery, candles and artisan cards.
Love almonds? Gather the family and enter in the Almond Cookery Competition, or have a go in the Almond Cracking Competition on Sunday.
The two day weekend festival will begin on Saturday 30 July, with a spectacular fireworks display to light up the skies on the opening night.
The festival is celebrating the region’s blossom time. Almond trees are the first to flower amongst other soft fruit trees, with blossoms beginning to appear in the colder winter months of July and August.
Take a stroll in Willunga’s park and find some hidden blooming gems – the perfect place to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy lunch on the grass.
The festival has been the Willunga Recreation Park’s major fundraising event since 1969, with it continuing to fund the upgrades of park facilities.
Entry for families is $25, with FREE entry for children under the age of five.
Willunga Park is also encouraging volunteer’s to join their team!
If you’re interested in staying for the weekend, the Fleurieu Peninsula is full of some of South Australia’s finest wineries and eateries, including the Willunga Wander wine walking trail.
The Willunga Wander is a self-guided wine walking trail, with hosted tastings along the way from Aphelion Wine Co, Hither & Yon, and Battle of Bosworth. Just one of many wonders of Willunga to explore.
The Willunga Almond Blossom Festival will run from Saturday 30 July until Sunday 31 July at 5 Main Rd, Willunga. For more information and to book, visit here.
