Willunga Recreation Park brings the wintery and wonderful Willunga Almond Blossom festival back to town on the 30th and 31st of July. Rug up and head on down south to enjoy a blossoming country carnival all about the beauty of winter and family fun.
Get to the park at Willunga for a whole weekend of show rides and family festivities starting at 11am on Saturday. Watch or join in with circus performers, pet the animals in the petting zoo, ride camels and ponies, play carnival games, ride the show rides and watch the dogs from Aldinga Bay School for Dogs go through their paces on the oval.
Learn more about almonds and meet the growers and join in on the almond cracking competition on the Sunday. Perhaps you might consider using almonds in a recipe to enter the almond-inspired cookery competition. Of course, you can just buy yourself some almonds at the festival and enjoy some local produce.
Did I mention food trucks? A festive range of food trucks and catering will be on site with all your carnival favourites or local wood-fired pizza, burgers, and plenty more. A great range of beer, wine, ciders, and soft drinks will be available to buy with water available on tap.
Don't forget the fireworks display at 7pm on Saturday night (weather permitting).
Book it in your calendars now for the 30th and 31st July, 2022, at Willunga Recreation Park. While you're down that way, download a self-guided almond tour map here and check out some of the regions hidden almond gems.
