Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in August August is the month to celebrate art in Adelaide, and throughout the month the SALA Festival brings us loads of fun things to do with art all around South Australia. Walking tours and workshops, art exhibitions and gala opening nights, plus fun for kids too - the world is your oyster with the huge number of events and free things to do in this year's program.
South of Adelaide join in the excitement at the Willunga Almond Blossom Festival bringing cheer at the beginning of August, but if the weather turns bad you still have other options indoors: the Australian Marmalade Festival is an opportunity to creatively use your surplus oranges, and produce your own winning marmalade.
Wet weather is the perfect time for nature play, and a range of new nature playgrounds will keep your (grand) children happy as mudlarks.
The Market Stalls at City East Markets Will Be Buzzing
What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in August The first weekend of August is super for shopping at markets in Adelaide. Choose from the Round She Goes preloved fashion markets, Gathered Market at Queens Theatre in the city, or the Magill Sunrise Market for the earlybirds.
The ever popular City East Markets on Flinders Street are back every weekend, with the added attraction of themed weekends this month including Mythical Beasts Adelaide markets and Bling Bling Jewellery and Fashion Market. Bookworms should head out to Fullarton for the Adelaide Secondhand Booksellers Fair.

There are some everyday things that we take for granted because they are always there when we want them. The Adelaide parklands are one of these things. We're so used to being able to walk the dog in the parklands, or go to a fair, attend a wedding, play sport, or eat lunch in their gardens. For years heritage advocates have been trying to get the Adelaide parklands heritage listed, and the government is now inviting YOU to have your say on the parklands. Please take a minute to complete the survey, and do your bit to keep the parklands for the community!
