Adelaide Fringe for Kids & Families

Family Friendly Shows for Kids at the 2022 Adelaide Fringe 

The Adelaide Fringe is always an exciting time of the year with plenty of free family friendly entertainment and fantastic shows for kids. 

The Adelaide Fringe runs for four weeks from mid-February to mid-March and there is something for absolutely everyone on offer, from street theatre and circus acts to world-class music, cabaret, theatre and comedy. Be sure to get your tickets early to the shows you want to see as many sell out fast.

In 2022, the Fringe will be operating within government guidelines. All Fringe Venues will have Covid Management Plans or Covid Safe Plans signed off by SA Health – these plans will determine the capacity of shows to ensure a Covid-safe Fringe is presented.

As in 2021, audiences can also enjoy Fringe shows from the comfort of their own living room via the Watch from Home option.
