Ayers House
Ayers House

February is filled with things to do as Adelaide Fringe arrives in town. Many are ticketed shows, but there's also a heap of events that won't cost you a cent. The lawn party at Ayers House on North Terrace will have dance music from The Flames and Back-to-Back on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th. If the sound of a pipe organ is more your thing, then you'll want to be at St Francis Xavier's Cathedral on Sunday the 19th for their 1pm recital. The cathedral's magnificent Casavant Freres pipe organ is unique to Australia.

Twilight Sessions

City of Prospect's Twilight Sessions provide an opportunity to wind down each Friday. Your relaxing evening out will be accompanied by live music, kids activities and food vendors. The weekly themes include pop classics, blues/soul/funk, retro rockabilly and Latin fiesta. Adelaide Airport has also jumped on the 'fringe' bandwagon presenting 90-minute Airport Sessions in the departure lounge on Tuesday the 14th and Thursday the 23th.

For those living in the north, be sure to head to the Gawler Fringe opening event at Walker Place on Friday the 17th. Local musicians and performers will keep you entertained throughout the afternoon and evening. You can expect fire dance, belly dance, chair acro and lollipop lyra demonstrations too. Although not part of Adelaide Fringe, concerts are also being held in the beautiful parks around City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters as well as at Heron Way Reserve in Hallett Cove.

I'm not aware of any free outdoor cinemas this month, nevertheless, Downton Abbey the feature-length film is showing at West Torrens Auditorium if you'd like a different experience. Also in the west, kids of all ages can get up close and personal with some big vehicles and their drivers or enjoy a model railway exhibit and radio-controlled car display. And, there will be more than thirty food trucks at The King's Fork for your indulgence. To savour more of your favourite dishes, why not put Beachside Food and Wine Festival down in your diary or simply check out the Food Truck Carnivale in Semaphore Park, Modbury and Willaston over the first three weekends!


Markets return to Ebenezer Place every Saturday night and Thorndon Park on Friday the 3rd. So does the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship as it sails from Melbourne. You can catch a glimpse of this floating palace at Outer Harbor. While on the topic of ships, do you know that Brickman's massive 3-metre-long LEGO RSV Nuyina is still on display at the South Australian Museum? You'll find the 3-in-1 icebreaker, floating scientific research platform and resupply vessel anchored in the foyer between 10am and 5pm.

Lastly, the twilight tour of Walkerville Wesleyan Cemetery has sold out, but you can join the waitlist if you wish. Otherwise, head down south and you'll have the opportunity to learn more about Oaklands Wetland instead. An hour-long tour has been scheduled for Thursday the 9th. You are welcome to book yourself in via their website. Those who are quick enough will also be able to secure a spot for the guided walk and drawing workshop at Marino Conservation Park.
