New to the Adelaide Food Fringe in 2021

This year, the Adelaide Food Fringe is excited to announce a new initiative and program stream: the world’s first International Pub Week.
This unique celebration highlights the culinary, cultural, social and economic impact of our Pubs for one whole week, from Sunday 9 May to Sunday 16 May. A whole week featuring special offers, events and stories behind the publicans, patrons and people that make our pubs integral to SA’s identity.

Charity Support:

The Adelaide Food Fringe donates 10% of all net registration fees collected to charity partner, Foodbank.

Last year, because of COVID and the impact it had on the wider community, the festival decided to donate 100% of its 2020 net registration fees collected to help with the extra demand for Foodbank’s service. The donation resulted in 1080 meals provided to South Australians.

In 2021, they’re setting a target to fund 5,000 meals through Foodbank via registration fees and events in their program pledging a part of their profit to Foodbank.
