Over 4 nights in March 2020, the Botanic Gardens will open at night for this very special and unique event. Adelaide's beautiful gardens will sparkle and glow as Compagnie Carabosse give SA our very own turn to burn.

Compagnie Carabosse are an internationally-renowned artist collective who travel the world with their unique and spellbinding illuminations. Their work has been displayed at Stonehenge, Kremlin Square, the Hue Bridge in Vietnam and Pont du Gard in France.

The Fire Gardens show was a sell-out at the 2018 Melbourne Festival with more than 30,000 people enjoying the fire spectacle. It's so very exciting to announce that in 2020 it will be Adelaide's turn to host this remarkable event.

The beautiful landscapes within the Adelaide Botanic Gardens will be transformed into mesmerising wonderlands of fire and light. The gardens will come to life with complex flame lit trails, blazing sculptures and various types of light and flames. The whole experience will be extraordinary.
