Get your fringe on

Adelaide Fringe will open tonight with close to 900 events registered across 392 venues. The festival has introduced changes to ensure a COVID-safe event this year ­– including more open-air performances and multiple entry points to large hubs. The Garden of Unearthly Delights and Gluttony have both redesigned their sites for 2021, so there will be more space to move about between shows. With the usual eclectic mix of cabaret, comedy, physical theatre, music, dance, magic, children’s events and more, there is something to keep everyone entertained until the festival draws to a close on March 21.

Fun at the cup

Head over to KI this month for the SeaLink Kangaroo Island Cup Racing Carnival at the Cygnet River Racecourse from February 18 to 20. Expect plenty of racing style, trackside entertainment, marquees, Fashions on the Field, and local food and wine.

Hot to handle

Chat with a diverse range of chilli producers at Chilli Fest Willunga on February 20 and 21, at the Willunga Recreation Park. Browse the chilli sauces, jams, rubs, oils and condiments at the community fundraiser. Relax and enjoy chilli-inspired food, local craft beer, wine and sangria. Live music will be on offer, as well as a market to shop for all your chilli needs.

Declaration of Vintage

The Barons Declaration of Vintage event is on this Sunday, February 21 in Tanunda. The Tanunda Town Band, the Young Ambassadors and students from Faith College will be taking part. The annual event begins with the blessing of the grapes at Tabor Church, followed by a colourful street procession and a line-up of winery vintage vehicles will complete the picture.
