Reppin' the west side
Having been raised in the western suburbs of Adelaide, I'm quite familiar with the areas and locations of the region. Located between the city and the sea, Adelaide's western suburbs boast beachside living at a more relaxed rate than suburbs closer to the Adelaide CBD. This allows a great abundant variety of events suitable for all ages.
May's Round She Goes Preloved Market has been an incredibly popular event, with stallholders selling vintage and second hand items such as clothing and accessories. Hosted in the Woodville Town Hall, just off of the busy Port Road, visitors will conveniently enjoy a day of market fun. The best thing about this, is that the tram line isn't too far, and buses frequently run along Port Road, allowing easy access to and from the city. Similarly, there is also free parking if you choose to ride in. $2 entry will guarantee a successful thrifting afternoon from 10am - 3pm, Saturday 21 May.

The Woodville Town Hall will also be hosting a lovely vintage classic movie event, playing the well-known film The King and I. This event is supported and created by a team of volunteers who aim to bring the western community together through a series of 'cosy classic' films that are frequently played at the town hall and are open to the public of all ages. This $6 event will commence at 1pm, with doors opening 30 minutes prior to the film. The Woodville Town Hall is a socially inclusive and disability friendly venue.For more information regarding this event, contact the City of Charles Sturt Council here.
A free event for all ages to take part in, Play Croquet on World Croquet Day at West Lakes, celebrates the sport of Croquet worldwide. With events like the Royal Croquet Club as part of the Adelaide Fringe, Croquet has become a rapidly growing and recognized leisurely activity in South Australia. All equipment is provided, and all ages are free to enter. Learn how to play the game and enjoy a day outdoors with family and friends. Saturday 7 May from 10am - 4.30pm.

Port Adelaide is becoming a bustling suburban region of Adelaide's western suburbs and a trendy one at that. Located at the Hart's Mill, Loaves and Fishes is bound to be a successful event to showcase the intriguing beauty of Port Adelaide, as well as it's characteristic old-world charm. Loaves and Fishes dedicates a day to two simple food staples - bread and fish. United States bakers and stars of The Grain Divide, Jeffrey Hamelman and Josey Baker, will craft bread, paired with fresh fish from the Port Adelaide docks, to spark an evening of intimate conversation and comfort food. This interesting event is $70 per person and is suited to adults. You can view more information about this event on the City of Port Adelaide and Enfield Council website. 6 May at 7pm.
