What’s on: Alpine Winter Festival, all you can eat tacos and Coonawarra Cellar Dwellers

Just because winter is here doesn’t mean we have to stay inside. We’ve sought the best events around our state this weekend to get you over the winter blues.


Alpine Winter Festival is heading west for an all-ages winter wonderland at Glenelg. The 24-day festival will run from June 25 to July 18 and will see Moseley Square and Glenelg’s foreshore transform into a wintery playground. There will be ice skating, immersive art installations, markets, delicious eats and live music. The festival will have a loosely themed Christmas atmosphere, with family fun by day, which kicks into warmth and good times well into the night. For further information on this year’s festival, line-up and tickets visit the website.


Ikigai Coffee Shop and Senor Taco are teaming up to bring you a night of salsa dancing, live music, margaritas and, of course, all-you-can-eat tacos. Learn how to salsa dance from the best in the business, La Bomba Dancing will guide you through the steps to nailing the perfect salsa dance no matter your experience. There will be live entertainment by Sabor A Cuba and Senor Tack will be cooking up a storm with their traditional, mouth-watering tacos. The event will take place on Saturday, June 26 at 6pm at Ikigai Lightsview and tickets are $55 per person.


Throughout the month of July, Coonawarra wineries are inviting wine lovers to discover treasures from Coonawarra’s cellars with back-vintage drops and special museum release wines on offer for tasting during the 17th annual Cellar Dwellers festival. There will be more than 50 events and unique tasting experiences taking place around the region during July. Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to visit the region during July to taste for themselves why Coonawarra wines are renowned the world over for their outstanding quality, flavour and cellaring abilities. The festival kicks off next week, Thursday, July 1 through to Saturday, July 31.


The third annual Longest Run South Australia will be held this Sunday, June 27. The event is back by popular demand and will allow runners to run up to seven parkrun courses. Participants can choose as many or as few courses as they like. There are three streams of events – hills, north and beaches. It is a free event and participants don’t need to register. For details on start times and locations check the Facebook event.


The Adelaide Botanic Garden has launched a new campaign titled “Be Here”, emphasising the many reasons for visiting the Botanic Garden. Located in the heart of the CBD but another world away, it’s a great place to take time out to explore. Whether you go alone, or with family or friends, you can unwind, de-stress and wander through the 50 hectares of magnificently-maintained gardens and stunning architecture. The campaign aims to remind the community about the many activities and experiences the Botanic Garden has to offer.


The RSPCA has relaunched a campaign titled “No Mum Left Behind” that aims to help adult cats find a loving home. Every year, cats come through the doors of the RSPCA looking for loving homes, with kittens often taking the spotlight. Sadly, this means adult cats typically spend much longer in shelters than their kitten counterparts. The “No Mum Left Behind” campaign, means anyone adopting a kitten from the RSPCA will also have the opportunity to adopt mum (or any other adult cat) at no charge.
