Five Free Fringe Events

Fringey-time is approaching once again. Adelaide comes to life, and suddenly there's so much to do. But just as there's only so much time to spend fringing it up, there's only so much money too. So here's five Adelaide Fringe events that don't come with an entry fee.

The Fringe Parade

As usual, Fringe will kick off with a spectacular opening night parade. An army of fringe artists will march down King William St to the beat of DJ Trip, all dressed in lavish costumes and accompanied by a variety of floats. Buildings on the west side of the street will be illuminated especially for the event.

Following on from the free parade, a range of Fringe shows will feature $5 tickets for opening night only.

Where/When: King William St, 8pm 9pm, Friday the 24th of February

Fringe in the Mall

Once again the Fringe Caravan will grace Rundle Mall, lowering its side board every day to reveal free excerpts of shows to the passing public. Additionally, a FringeTIX box office will be found here, where festival-goers can buy tickets and official merchandise.

Where/When: Gawler Place Canopy, Rundle Mall 17 February 18 March

Tour of the Unexpected

Free Fringe buses will lurch from venue to venue, with festival promoters promising a "wild and spontaneous" journey. The service will help festival veterans get to where they need to go, while Fringe rookies can find out everything they need to know from the special tour guides onboard.

Where/When: City centre
24 February 18 March
Tuesday Sunday,
6pm to Midnight

BankSA Free Concerts

For four nights a week at the Garden of Unearthly Delights, a range of free comedy, music and performance will be on show for the public. Additionally, free show tickets and "BankSA treats" (whatever that means) will be up for grabs.

Entry to the Garden itself is also free, and the kooky carnival atmosphere is worth a visit in itself.

Where/When: Rundle Park, 17 February 18 March (Thurs-Sun only) at 5:30pm

Adelaide Fringe Street Theatre Festival

Exactly what it says on the tin a range of international street performers strut their stuff around the city for four days and nights. A family-friendly event, expect plenty of acrobatics and comedy.
