What’s On: Grapes of Mirth, Glenside Lions Arts Show and garden strolls

Indulge in South Australia's best produce this weekend with food trucks galore at OzAsia, seafood by the beach and plenty of wine at Seppeltsfield.

Wine time

Head to Seppeltsfield Estate on October 29 and 30 for a gathering of entertainment, comedy and wine with Grapes of Mirth. Join Merrick Watts and a curated collection of comedian friends and local producers as they provide an afternoon of stand-up delights alongside wine from the region’s producers and bites to eat from local food trucks. Pack your folding chairs and picnic rugs and prepare to soak in the sunshine on the Seppeltsfield Estate lawns.

Cottage to the core

Head to Kadina and immerse yourself in the tranquil Camelot Garden that will be opening its gates to the public from Friday, September 28 to Sunday, September 30. Enjoy strolling through this depiction of an English country garden, encompassing an acre of land. Established trees are a backdrop to garden beds showcasing cottage flowers, roses, salvia, hellebores and bordering edges of rosemary and English box hedge.

By the seaside

Experience Glenelg’s finest seafood with the inaugural Sea to Shore Glenelg Seafood Festival on Saturday, October 29. Indulge in delicious seafood dishes curated by South Australian chefs and paired with decadent wines while overlooking the sparkling sea. With wild cooking, oyster shucking and live music entertainment, there is no better way to soak in the atmosphere.

Feeling flexible and free

Experience the freedom of aerial movement at Movement Halo on Friday, October 28 with the late-night edition of The Aerial Project as part of WellFest Adelaide. Not quite yoga and not quite Pilates, aerial movement is a hybrid of the two mixed with acrobatics and meditation. In a class suitable for all skill levels, guests will experience the freedom of being supported by an aerial hammock as they play with movements and shapes that will help develop a strong core, improve posture and increase flexibility.

World of roses

The Adelaide International Rose and Garden Expo will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from October 28 to 30. Coinciding with the 19th World Federation of Rose Societies’ World Rose Convention, the expo will feature floral displays and fashion parades alongside hourly lectures by Australian and international speakers. There will be plenty of professional and trade exhibitors showcasing their products, as well as children’s activities that will keep the whole family entertained. Running alongside the City of Adelaide’s Flower Days, this will be the perfect place to celebrate a weekend dedicated to flora.

Inspiring words

OzAsia Festival’s writing and ideas program, In Other Words, returns from November 3 to 6 with three days of conversations between poets, novelists, playwrights, performers and creatives from around the world. Curated by writer and comedian Jennifer Wong, In Other Words delivers an exciting perspective on our history, our present and our future on the banks of the Karrawirra Pari.

Roaring good art

The 2022 Glenside Lions Arts Show and competition will be held at the City of Burnside Ballroom from October 27 to 30, with a Gala Opening Night taking place on Wednesday, October 26. Around 300 artworks will be on display, showcasing pieces by past winners including Lyn Robins, Roe Gartelmann and Ian Burman. Proceeds from the event raised through commissions, entrance fees, opening night tickets and raffles will be donated to Catherine House to support women experiencing homelessness.
