What’s On: Racing, WOMAD and International Women’s Day celebrations

Mad March is here and we have you covered! From Fringe to WOMAD to the Adelaide Cup, you won’t be struggling to find things to do this long weekend.


WOMADelaide 2021 is here and is excited to welcome their new custom-built SA Health approved temporary location in King Rodney Park (Park 15). WOMAD may look a little different this year but the same great selection of Australian headline artists will be performing. Midnight Oil, Tash Sultana, Miesha and many more will be performing at the sunset concerts across four nights and it all kicks off on Friday, March 5.


The iconic Adelaide Cup is back on again at Morphettville Racecourse on Monday, March 8. The 2021 event promises to be full of action, with multiple packages to choose from. As always, this year’s Adelaide Cup expects remarkable fashion, live racing and entertainment. Things will be a little different this year due to COVID-19 and numbers are limited, so be sure to book.


Celebrate International Women’s Day in style at Sol Restaurant on Tuesday March 9. The event features a four-course lunch curated by head chef Kane Pollard with matching cocktails. The event will be hosted by Amelia Mulcahy and with special guest speakers Oliva Molly Rogers, South Australian former Miss Universe Australia and Anna Meares, 11-time World Champion cyclist. There will be giveaways on the day, including a chance to win a luxury stay at EOS by SkyCity.

Fun of the Fringe

Fringe is showing no signs of slowing down, and there’s plenty to see and do this weekend. Get along to the Garden of Unearthly Delights to take in a show and peruse the food stalls, and keep it going with a wander to Gluttony to check out spectacular light show Borealis. Discover the Fringe’s Weekly Awards winners for some inspiration, and go wherever the weekend takes you.

Living Proof will be exhibiting at the Migration Museum from March 6 to June 30. Living Proof is a collaboration between Bene Aged Care, chef and writer Rosa Matto and photographer Italo Vardaro. Nine beautiful stories and images exploring the subject of growing older are featured from Bene employees, residents and their families. The exhibition hopes to shed light and inspire conversations of compassion and open-mindedness around what it means to grow older for individuals and their families.


Applications for the YMCA SA Youth Parliament 2021 program are open now, until March 14. Youth Parliament is a non-partisan program aimed at amplifying and empowering the voices of young people. The program aims to develop a better understanding of democracy while allowing young leaders to have their say on important issues. To participate, applicants must be between 15 and 25 years of age and currently reside in South Australia.
