What’s On: Fringe heads to Murray Bridge, while Mercato turns 50

This weekend, head to Port Adelaide or Murray Bridge to experience more of the 2022 Fringe Festival, or get your food and wine fix from Clink.

Riverside Fringe

The Fringe Festival will be heading to Murray Bridge for 10 days starting on Friday, February 25. Sixteen performances will be featured at the Town Hall Theatre and Attic, the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery and the library, which have been transformed into Fringe venues. The Sixth Street Precinct will once again become “Fringe on Sixth” and host a variety of pop-up food stalls in addition to a fully functioning bar during showtimes.

Glasses clinking

Hardy’s Tintara Winery and McLaren Vale Hotel are teaming up to host a pop-up summer wine bar and dining experience called Clink, which foodies and wine lovers can sink their teeth into on weekends until the end of March. Enjoy cocktails and Accolade Wines with Latin American street food created by McLaren Vale Hotel chef Simon Burr and served from a food truck. The experience is accompanied by a live music line-up called Fig Gigs, performed at the winery’s natural amphitheatre alongside the giant Moreton Bay fig tree. Clink is open Friday and Saturday noon until late, and Sunday noon until 8pm. Upcoming live music includes Brett Littlefair on Friday, February 25, Driving Doris and DJ Marc B on Saturday, February 26, and Perrin J Walker on Sunday, February 27.

Taste of Italy

Adelaide’s little piece of Italy, Mercato, is celebrating its 50th Anniversary on Friday, February 25 with a night of classic cocktails and a specially curated menu. Starting from 4pm, indulge in the flavours of Italy while you listen to a live deejay set and join in a game of Italian foosball.

Picture this

From Saturday, February 26 to Sunday, March 20 discover a hidden world with The BIG Picture Series – an immersive, self-guided tour of historic Port Adelaide as part of the 2022 Adelaide Fringe Festival. Eight augmented reality artworks by local and international artists will be presented through the Big Picture Series AR app that brings the urban world to life as you scan the pieces with your phone. Pirate Life will customise your VR tour experience with a picnic pack that you can enjoy along the way, while pop-bar Confession will feature live performances every Thursday to Sunday during the Fringe.
