March is a monster month
Top Free Things to do in Adelaide - March 2015
Blinc Light & Sound Display, Part of the Festival of Arts
Boring Adelaide has done it again, swamping us with a sea of Fringe Festival activities in what is probably the busiest month of the year for festivals in Adelaide. I've been so engrossed in the fun things to do that I nearly forgot to write this article.
It's hard not to get caught up in the Adelaide Fringe, with a cornucopia of free things to do, and many other tickets available very cheaply or at half price. In the northern suburbs the Salisbury Secret Garden is the place to be - why spend your time travelling to the city?
The Festival of Arts kicks off on Friday February 27 and tends to traditional fare at times, but this year has some quite uniquely exciting things to see and do. Check out these tips to see the festival on a budget.
Craig Lowndes Roars Along North Terrace in His Clipsal 500 V8 Car
Of course life goes on beyond these festivals. The Clipsal 500 is back for those who think the arts have eight cylinders and a loud exhaust, while electronic music lovers of all ages will flock to the South Parklands for the family entertainment at the free Square Mile Music Festival on Saturday February 28.
The popular Faces of Fort Largs photo exhibition has now been extended until March 6 at the Semaphore and Port Adelaide RSL. The free event will then move to the Port Adelaide Library where it will remain open until Anzac Day.
What's On in Adelaide - Free Events
The AMC Music Hall of Fame Exhibition at State Library SA
The State Library (SA) in Adelaide is hosting two free exhibitions during March. The AMC Music Hall of Fame: Yesterday's Heroes exhibition celebrates South Australia's innovative music history. It documents how music promoters such as Alex Innocenti nurtured local acts in The Cellar, a forerunner of the Jade Monkey. Innocenti also organised the Myponga Music Festival and other concerts which kept Adelaide at the forefront of Australian music.
On the Treasures Wall Art of Nature is another free exhibition with beautiful artistic renditions of nature, made before photography was possible.
This month book lovers are in for a couple of treats. Oxfam has a 50 cent sale on fiction books on Saturday March 7, while antiquarian book hunters should check out Michael Treloar's sale starting the same day.
