What’s On: Pop-up scones, wine and dine at Seafire and spring on the stage

Spring is finally here, so get out and enjoy all it has to offer, including some special events at the Adelaide Festival Centre and the iconic scones from the CWA.


The Royal Adelaide Show has been cancelled this year, but that won’t stop the South Australian Country Women’s Association (SACWA) from selling their famous scones via a pop-up location in the Adelaide Central Market Market. The pop-up stall will run from 9.30am during what would’ve been shown week, from September 4 to 11. Takeaway scones and jars of jam will be available for purchase to enjoy at home, and there will be speciality showbags with scone mix, jam and a tea towel. All proceeds raised will go to SACWA. Market shoppers can celebrate “show day” on Saturday, September 4 with free kids’ crafts, roving entertainment and live music. Freshly-spun fairy floss and Bertie Beetles will be available for purchase at the Old Lolly Shop, while Adelaide’s Famous Poffertjes will be cooking up a storm at the Market’s Producer in Residence pop-up stall.


Seafire on the Marina at Glenelg is pairing up with Wynns Coonawarra Estate for an exclusive dinner celebrating delicious food and local wine. The event will take place on Thursday, September 9, with guests treated to a four-course meal prepared by Seafire’s talented chefs. Each course will be paired with a glass of Wynns wine. The dinner will see guests go in the draw to win a number of door prizes, as well as a mystery wine supplied by Wynns. Join Seafire on the Marina for a night dedicated to celebrating food and wine, along with gorgeous views of the Marina Pier.


September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and The Kids’ Cancer Project is inviting people to join The Better Challenge and buy gold ribbons to raise awareness and funds for children’s cancer research. This September, run, walk or roll 90 kilometres during the month to raise money for kids’ cancer treatments that are kinder, gentler, more effective and better. Wearing a gold ribbon shows solidarity for those going through kids’ cancer; ribbons can be purchased online. Get involved and honour children with cancer and the community supporting them.

Adelaide Festival Centre is getting ready for a big season with shows for all ages with Kicking Off Spring 2021. Brand new work The World is Looking For You, created by the centre’s inSPACE program, tells the true story of a woman joining a search party to find herself and will be on at the Space Theatre until September 4. Throughout the month, OUR MOB will feature art by First Nations artists and two new and free in-person events, OUR WORDS and OUR STORIES. Families are welcomed to sit around the OUR STORIES campfire on the Space Theatre stage to hear traditional Dreaming stories from local storytellers. The season continues with the Adelaide Guitar Festival and OzAsia Festival.
