Forkmas - Fork on the Road in Victoria Square


If anyone in Adelaide hasn't heard of Fork on the Road yet, then perhaps they have recently arrived from another planet. The famous fleet of food trucks which forage about Adelaide and suburbs brings a festival atmosphere wherever they go.

The combination of tasty fresh street food made from local ingredients, free family entertainment, and creative activities for kids and toddlers is a winner. In fact earlier this year Fork on the Road was recipient of the Community Event of the Year at the City of Adelaide 2014 Australia Day Awards, confirming its status as one of the best free things to do in Adelaide.

Fork on the Road events have often been allied with community partners, and the Christmas Fork on the Road will be no exception. Forkmas is the special name for the event on Friday December 19 in Victoria Square, which unfortunately had to be cancelled last year because of extremely hot weather. This year the organisers are again partnering with The Smith Family, a charity devoted to helping children in need.

People coming to Forkmas are encouraged to bring gifts suitable for a child, which will then be distributed to disadvantaged children all about Adelaide. Your gift can be left under the City of Adelaide Christmas tree, and will be collected later for distribution.

It's too early to know the full line up of food trucks which will be bringing street food to Victoria Square, but expect many old favourites like Phat Buddha Rolls, Wienerbago gourmet German food, Argentinian inspired Chimichurri Grill and Archie the Pastizzi Bus. Newer arrivals Cheesy Street and Bon Jing Filipino Grill seem to be expanding their menus so will also be worth checking out.

Every Fork on the Road that I have been to (nearly all) has had great family entertainment including live music and roving performers, while the activities for kids range from ball sports to free face painting. Details of Forkmas on Friday December 19 are still being finalised, so check the Fork on the Road website and Facebook page for updates and event times.

So get into the spirit of Christmas for Forkmas, bring a gift for the Smith Family to distribute to needy children about Adelaide, and have a forkin' good time!
