Both locals and annual visitors call this time of year “Mad March” in Adelaide, thanks to the array of festivals and events dotted around the city.
If you’re planning a trip to South Australia during the change from summer to autumn, these are the best cultural, musical, sporting and food festivals to catch when you’re in the state’s capital this month.
With over 1,000 events covering theatre, cabaret, comedy, music and eclectic, experimental works, Adelaide Fringe is a magnet for creative types. It sells hundreds of thousands of tickets to events over the 30 days that it runs and includes a wide range of free performances and experiences around the city.
This year’s festival is host to 7,000 artists and includes some very unique events. Think live music in a hot air balloon and a play set in a caravan park, as well as talks and workshops to get your own creative juices going.
Kicking off at the end of February, Adelaide Festival is one of the country’s most significant annual cultural events. This year’s program features 10 world premieres and 17 Australian premieres, along with 8 works commissioned for the festival.
Highlights include Adelaide Festival's 60th birthday concert featuring Tim Minchin, Trois Grandes Fugues Lyon Opera Ballet, Fire Gardens and more.
You can find tickets for any budget, with 15 free events over the course of the festival, youth tickets, “pay what you feel” and premium options.
Although it’s technically a part of Adelaide Festival, there’s enough going on at Adelaide Writers’ Week to merit a separate write-up. If you’re looking for some literary inspiration or an in-depth talk on the state of the world, culture and society, this is the week you’ll want to be in Adelaide.

What started out as a single Spiegeltent in 2000 has since transformed into a quirky and fun outdoor festival with a circus-like atmosphere. On the outside, it's all carnival rides, market food stalls and roving performers while inside the tents is everything from theatre and dance to puppetry and stand-up comedy.
Highlights on this year's bill include Blanc de Blance, Don Chambers, Best of Edinburgh Fest and Peter Helliar. Searching for somewhere to while away your weekend? Head in on Saturday from 2.30pm for live and local sessions in The Garden.
Hosted in Adelaide’s beautiful Botanic Park, WOMADelaide is an epic, four-day festival of music, dance and arts. Each year, around 500 artists from 30 countries perform across the 34-hectare park, which also includes installation art, engaging talks, workshops and roaming performances.
This year, the line-up features more than 40 acts from 25 countries around the world, including Aldous Harding, The Blind Boys of Alabama, B.Dance, Destyn Maloya and more. Adult ticket prices start from $155 for a night pass, with concession and youth pricing available. And if you’re bringing kids under 12, they’ll get in for free.
