The Adelaide Food Fringe – the newest and most inclusive of Adelaide food festivals. Support local food heroes – full program up in March.
Full program launches 22 March
Festival dates Friday 7 May to Sunday 16 May 2021
If there’s one thing South Australia is noted for it’s for the broad range of Adelaide food festivals that we enjoy. Every taste is catered for in the range of our food fests, with the biggest, Tasting Australia, happening annually in May.
This year, and coinciding with the big event, is the Adelaide Food Fringe – a new, community-based, diverse and affordable foodie frolic.
The brain-child of director Vic Pisani, Adelaide Food Fringe was all dressed up and ready to kick off, with a full program of accessible events, last year … but we all know what happened to 2020. However, you can’t keep a great idea down, and the Adelaide Food Fringe festival is back and ready for a second shot at an inaugural year. Bigger and better, there’s an expanded festival program of 9 days from Friday 7 May to Sunday 16 May 2021, a celebration of pubs called “International Pub Week” and a new poster featuring artwork by much-loved Adelaide artist, Billie Justice Thomson.
What makes this food event different from other Adelaide food festivals, I hear you ask?
The Adelaide Food Fringe is a 100% open-access food and drink festival, not a festival with a fenced in area and food vendors. The program for this event exists to support and celebrate local food producers and suppliers. With a reasonably priced, broadly ranging and accessible food and beverage program, the whole state is a potential festival site as every business, club, venue or premises presenting a food or beverage related event is the venue.
The most inclusive of Adelaide food festivals, this is a brilliant opportunity for South Australians to enjoy our state’s incredible food and beverage businesses, venues, clubs, producers, multicultural communities and cultural institutions. Attendees can choose from events this year like cooking classes, tea and cheese tastings and even a Korean fried chicken and Korean spirits tasting.
The full program will be launched on 22 March 2021 – so keep an eye out for it!
