Salisbury Secret Garden is no secret anymore. Over 10,000 people attended the new Fringe venue in the northern suburbs in 2016 and this year will be a featured packed event. No longer do residents have to travel all the way to Adelaide to attend a Fringe performance, as many of the city Fringe acts are making an appearance in Salisbury along with some local talent. This year, there will be 100 free and ticketed performances in Salisbury over the ten days.

FOR TICKETED EVENTS GO DIRECT TO THE FRINGE PROGRAM LINK HERE These include a variety of short shows with theatre, music, bands, comedy and more. There is something for everyone. Do support the ticketed events as these artists are coming here especially for people up north.

The main venues are the indoor venue, The Institute Hall in Wiltshire St., and the outdoor venue Civic Square on the western side of Parabanks Shopping Mall. These are all an easy walking distance from the train station. Please check the program for other venues.

Last year the Showcase Concert was indoors at the Institute and it was far too crowded. This year, the Showcase will be on two dates, Fridays 24th February and March 3rd. The evening concert will be held at the Civic Square stage. The event starts at 4.30 pm with entertainment through the evening and then an outdoor cinema movie. Remember to bring a jacket or light blanket.

There will be some fun family friendly events on during the Fringe and up in the north, you will not be missing out. On Sunday, March 5th there will be a family fun day at Civic Square. The free event will have some performances and fun family activities. You may want to bring along some folding chairs.
