Twilight evenings by the river and the sea with lots to see
Fleurieu Fringe has a fantastic program of entertainment every Friday and Saturday evenings over the festival Fringe weeks of 17th February to 18th March. The venue will be the community arts centre of Rose Sauerbier House Cultural Exchange at Noarlunga.

The program starts with a fabulous Artisan Market. The twilight market will be held only Fridays from 5pm and Saturdays from 3pm. Browse the many local artisan's stalls and inspect their wares. A great opportunity to purchase some quality arts and crafts for gifts you may need during the year.

Locally made goods will include sculpture, paintings, photography and jewellery. On Saturdays the market will continue, however, some more stallholders will join in. Indulge in some lovely handmade beauty products and local grown and prepared produce. There will also be some children's amusements such as camel and pony rides.

The Artisan Market will also hold some special artisan workshops over the event. These are only on Saturdays and include drawing, printing, watercolour painting, and making dreamcatchers and macramé workshop. Spots are limited. I cannot see any details about booking in so maybe you sign up on the night.

In addition to the market, the Fleurieu Fringe program will also kick off at the same venue on the Friday evening from around 5pm. No need to go home from work to cook. Head down to the Fringe and treat yourself to some freshly prepared meals from the food trucks and stalls.

There will be plenty of food and drink on sale including Greek, Sri Lankan, pizza, tacos and many more. Simon Bryant will be there with his food offerings from new venture DIRT(Y) Inc. McClaren Vale wines and craft beers will be on tap. Pop by the" Love at Thirst Shot" booth where you can have a cocktail or mocktail to kick off your weekend.

Download the PDF document with musical entertainment here. A good time to head down with the family for a relaxing summer evening out would be on mid-afternoon on Saturdays. Program highlights which are more suitable for children are on Saturdays with a magic show, gymnastic and circus skills on over the four weeks. Check out the special show for families called Pico's Puppet Palace and the Razi magic show on opening night.

For the adults, there is a bumper program which looks entertaining and relaxed, just perfect for chilling out after a hard week's work. There is a varied selection of visiting Fringe acts and artists appearing at the event. Including music, comedy, circus, dance and more. The program will change each night of the four weeks.

The music looks to be easy listing with acoustic guitar and vocals with interstate and international acts. Chilled out music so you can still sit and join in with your friend's conversations.

There is a 9 page PDF doc with the program, you may want to download at home so you can choose which nights you wish to attend. For more details on the acts and even some news on market stall holders and all the updates check out the facebook page here. The evenings end at 9pm.
