Highlights of What's On in Adelaide in October The October long weekend kicks off this month with a splash of colour and exciting things to do in Adelaide, starting with Indofest Adelaide in its new home at Victoria Square. The combination of free entry, amazing foods, and an impressive array of colourful traditions will ensure this event is packed with people having fun. Why not stay with the Asian theme and join in the Moon Lantern Festival later that day? It's fantastic fun for kids, with plenty of free things to do.
The Open State Festival has just hit town for 2017, but people have been surprisingly slow to embrace it. With lots of innovative events celebrating food and wine (including Are You Bug Curious?), it really deserves a second look.
For the more mature among us, there's Zest Fest bringing Adelaide families and communities together to explore ageing well - without missing the fun. And with the October school holidays here already, parents (and grandparents) can find heaps of fun for kids during the Nature Play Festival all around SA.
What's On in Adelaide - Free Things to Do in October You shouldn't need to spend a penny at these free events in October! Catch free outdoor movies on the 6th, visit the Asian inspired Lucky Dumpling market in Adelaide's Elder Park on the long weekend, or veg out at the family-friendly freaky Adelaide Zombie Walk from Rundle Park.
Not Free, but Fun Things to Do in Adelaide Head for the beautiful Adelaide Hills to join in affordable family activities including guided tours and a treasure hunt - but be sure to book as events fill quickly in the school holidays.
