The Pageant will be held as a twilight parade at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday, November 14. This will allow a COVID-safe crowd to attend the treasured event, and ensure the health and safety of South Australians for the magical evening. The number of spectators allowed to attend the event has been determined as a COVID-safe number for an event of its size and format.
Ballot registrations will open at 10am ACDT on Thursday, October 29 and will remain open until 10pm that evening. Access to register will be open for 36 hours, and successful registrants will be selected randomly, not on a first come first serve basis. Access will be via the Pageant website through Ticketek, with individuals able to request up to five tickets when they register. Once registrations close, the ballot system will electronically and randomly select those people who will attend the event. Successful and unsuccessful registrants will be advised in the days following the registration, and tickets will be sent out digitally a week prior to the event. Entry is free.
