Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in March
When you see what's on in Adelaide during March, the only dilemma that you face is finding time for all the exciting things to do. On the cultural front, the Adelaide Fringe and Adelaide Festival are packed with performances. Take your pick of comedy, film, dance and art - it's all there for you until March 18. You can also be creative yourself at Adelaide Writers Week from March 3 until March 8.

For many people, the throaty roar and pungent fumes of mechanical might are what makes your heart beat faster, and the Adelaide 500 should do the trick. Personally, I prefer an edgier race and less noise, with the excitement building more slowly, and you can't go past the Great Australian Snail Race for that.

Otherwise, why not enjoy the hedonistic pleasures of the best food and wine at the Cellar Door Fest in Adelaide? There's no need to drive all about South Australia for wine tastings when many regional wineries are represented at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Home Ground cafe court is sure to have some tasty food on offer to soak up any excess wine.

What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in March
Join in the free things to do with Holi on the Beach at Semaphore, then treat the kids to some fun at the nearby Semaphore amusement park. There's more fun for kids at the special Adelaide Festival Kids Weekend, and also heaps of family entertainment at the colourful Al Salam Festival on March 10. The Puddle Jumpers Grand Opening Celebration is also on the same day.

Adelaide Night Market is returning to farewell the Fringe, and Unley Night Market is a delight to visit during early autumn.

There are some quite unusual free things to do in March - catch the excitement of tall ships when national sail training ship Young Endeavour visits Port Adelaide. Grab a bite of moreish Thai food while watching traditional dances at the free Thai Festival, head to the Mount Barker District Show, the free Meadows Easter Fair, or gamble your future playing Gay Bingo at Mylk Bar on Sundays.

Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide
Get an early Taste of Ireland before St Patrick's Day, find Childhood Birth Education for Dads at the pub, or Paint Your Pet - and I don't mean colouring up your furbaby!

History lovers shouldn't miss the Port Adelaide Heritage Bus Tour or a guided tour of Torrens Island Quarantine Station, and there will be some very special entertainment this month for Summer Sundays at Beaumont House. There's more food fun at Tonsley for the Twilight Cheese Festival and loads of food and fun things to do at Glendi Greek Festival.

Catch an outdoor movie at Glenelg, help clear the River Murray of pests, or keep fit with a charity walk. If there's a glint in your partner's eye, it could be they are planning a visit to Gemboree.
