Have a cracker of a Christmas in the city this year thanks to the City of Adelaide!
Every year Adelaide’s Christmas Festival brings you a range of festive events, live performances, activations, and installations to bring Christmas alive in the city. This year is no exception! Check out this year’s highlights below.
Giant Christmas Tree
Soaring 25 metres into the air, the giant Christmas tree is back this year at Victoria Square / Tarntanyangga. Each night from 8:00pm, the tree will be transformed into a dazzling light display that loops every 10 minutes. The Victoria Square fountains will be on for the kids to splash in on a hot summer’s night under the Christmas lights!
New to the city this year is Bauble Canopy, an art installation by Atelier Sisu. Hanging baubles that reflect light during the day and light up at night will line both Peel Street and Vaughan Place to create a spectacular display this festive season.
