What’s On: Gawler Show and Hahndorf Winter Lantern Festival

It's showtime in South Australia with the Gawler Show kicking off this weekend and the Hills lighting up for the Hahndorf Winter Lantern Festival.

Show up

South Australia’s largest regional show, The Gawler Show will return for 2022 on August 27 and 28. The fun-filled family weekend will offer exhibitions, show rides, live entertainment and a fireworks display. Enter a competition and show off your skills in everything from literature and photography to floriculture and scarecrows.

Take a sip

On Sunday, August 28, the Arkaba Hotel will be offering an opportunity to sample more than 200 wines from South Australia’s best wine regions as the SA Wine Showcase returns for another year. Kicking off at midday, guests can pair their wines with a selection of cheeses and relax to live music alongside friends and family. Specials on wines will be available throughout the event, and guests who vote for their favourite tasting on the day will go in the running to win prizes.


Lighting the hills

Take a trip to the Hills for the Hahndorf Winter Lantern Festival at the Alec Johnston Park on Saturday, August 27. Local school children design and make lanterns for the event, with local artists helping to construct giant lanterns. In the evening, enjoy the breathtaking parade along with live music and a fire mural that will light up the night. There are even paper lantern workshops where you can create your own lantern and participate in the parade.

An incredible score

Candlelight Concerts will bring the magic of a live, multi-sensory musical experience to the Capri Theatre this Friday, August 26 with Candlelight: Hans Zimmer’s Best Works. Performed by the Joseph Freer String Quartet, be amazed by Hans Zimmer’s best works from scores of iconic movies such as Inception, The Lion King and The Dark Knight.

Delightful daffodils

The Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day will colour the world yellow on Thursday, August 25. South Australians are encouraged to get involved and show their support for those affected by cancer by raising money with friends and family, at school or at work, or by donating to the appeal. The Cancer Council is the largest not-for-profit funder of cancer research in Australia and has financed life-changing breakthroughs in medical research over the years.
