What’s On: Reconciliation Week, Flame Festival and a Hutt Street party

This weekend, embrace Australian culture with the start of National Reconciliation Week or head to the Copper Coast for Flame Festival.

Appreciating Australians

Friday, May 27 marks the beginning of 2022 National Reconciliation Week where all Australians can learn about their shared histories, cultures and achievements, and explore how they can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. There will be many events occurring around SA to celebrate the 2022 theme “Be Brave, Make Change” including story time at the museum, short film screenings celebrating First Nations culture, and bush tucker walk and talks. On Friday, June 3, Reconciliation South Australia will be hosting the free, family-friendly event Nguyanguya muri wamangka: Reconciliation in the Park at Pinky Flat, Tarntanya Wama, War Memorial Drive. The event will be headlined by Baker Boy, with J-MILLA, Tilly Tjala Thomas, SVVLO and Deadly Nannas also taking the stage.

Hit up Hutt Street

On Friday, May 27 head to Hutt Street for a Pocket Party hosted by ADL Unleashed, where you will be able to eat, drink and dance the night away. Bask in the glory of the historic Arab Steed Hotel for after-work drinks before heading to one of Hutt Streets’ many multicultural dining options such as NaGomi or Raj on Taj. Live music and roaming performers will take to the streets and provide entertainment throughout the night as you keep warm with fireside setups.

Fired-up festival

Enjoy a three-day festival of food, light, art, music and entertainment from Friday, May 27 to Sunday, May 29 with the Copper Coast FLAME Festival. With more than 50 events across Wallaroo, Kadina and Moonta, the festival will showcase the best of the Copper Coast. Kick off the festival with Yorkes Emporium and indulge in local produce, brews and performances as Moonta’s Queen Square is transformed into a magical marketplace. The Flaming Fiesta Street Party will bring the main street of Wallaroo to life on Saturday night as The York Band and Spark Circus perform live before a special light show is projected on the Wallaroo Silos. Kadina will be offering a smorgasbord of workshops and tasting experiences over the weekend, immersing visitors in all the region has to offer.

Scenic sips

Head to McLaren Vale on Saturday, May 28 for Sound Views, a relaxed night of music, wine and food at Beach Road Wines. Enjoy the live sounds of Rhys Coventry as you sip on a range of wine, beer and cocktails from the cellar door bar. Grab some nibbles and a wood-oven pizza for dinner and enjoy an evening with friends surrounded by the gorgeous vineyards.

Raising dough

On Sunday, May 29 the Pizza Run will take place in Bonython Park with a five-kilometre race, a 10-kilometre race and a two-kilometre “Family Dash” taking place on the day.
