A big list of Adelaide's fetes and fairs
The Spring fete season is well underway. Who doesn't love a school or church fete with lots of stall bargains, plants and homemade cakes? Most fetes and fairs put on a lot of entertainment for the kids. I have not listed all the activities for each event - you will have to go along and check out those nearest to you. The events are listed in chronological order, so you can start with what is coming up this weekend.
Please leave a comment with any fete or fair near you that is not on this list.
Most fairs have lots of rides and fun for children. Image by Kat May.
