FLOCK TO BOWERBIRD
Get a start on your Christmas shopping as Bowerbird – Adelaide’s premier design market – returns to the Adelaide Showgrounds from November 17 to 19. Bringing together dozens of designers and makers from across Australia, there will be an abundance of fashions and accessories, crafts and toys, and furniture and homewares on offer. Between shopping, treat yourself to artisanal food and drinks as you soak up the atmosphere and enjoy live music, or sign up for a workshop and learn a new skill directly from the makers. The design market is open from 4pm to 9pm on Friday and from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
The King William Road Long Lunch will return this year after a five-year hiatus, with food relief charity OzHarvest a new partner.
