In 2019, Edithburgh is celebrating its 150 year anniversary! Come and celebrate this wonderful milestone at A Day at the Burgh, a FREE community event filled with amazing art, delicious food and great live music!*
By the early 1920s, Edithburgh had become the third busiest out-port in South Australia and was an industrial town exporting salt from nearby lakes. Grains, gypsum, lime and eggs were also other products shipped from the port.
Today it is a delightful town and popular holiday destination, just 233 kilometres from Adelaide on the Yorke Peninsula.
Held from the 15th to 17th November, A Day at the Burgh will showcase a fabulous line-up of events - including a fashion parade, vintage cars, kids activities, live music, food & wine tastings and much more!
The festivities will kick off on Friday 15 November at 6.00pm in Edithburgh Institute with an art preview.
On Saturday 16 November, you can join enlightening historical tours, talks and film screenings commencing at 2.00pm. In the evening at 8.00pm, country music star Amber Joy Poulton will hit the stage and get you on your dancing feet!
On Sunday 17 November, the street festival will take over the charming town from 11am. At 4.00pm, the festivities will come to a close with an intimate interview with Ms. Anne Wills and Mr. Peter Goers.
