Top things to do with your family at Barossa Vintage Festival! 

I See You Like This by Jessica Wilson

‘I See You Like This’ by artist Jessica Wilson is an interactive photo studio event, pairing child and guardian in an experience that turns the camera back on the parent so they can see how they are viewed by their little loved ones. The experience includes the opportunity for the child to adorn their guardian with props, and to work with an artist and local photographer, to capture an incredible professional portrait which will be on display during Festival days.

Step back in time to a bygone era and get lost in this bustling live market atmosphere. Literally meaning ‘goat market’, Ziegenmarkt first appeared in Tanunda during the mid-1800s and is brought back to life every two years for the Vintage Festival. Immerse yourself in the heritage of Barossa’s old-world live auction; bid for fresh produce, preserves, pickles and smallgoods; taste the local fare and soak up the excitement and atmosphere of Ziegenmarkt. Treat yourself to a Barossa breakfast, with an abundance of wine, food, and fresh and ready-to-eat produce including traditional Barossa rote grütze. A fun, free family-friendly event with entertainment the whole family will enjoy.

Sunset at Seppeltsfield Road 

Overlook the vineyards as the sun sets over Seppeltsfield Road’s famous Avenue of Palms for one of the region’s most iconic and unforgettable experiences. Settle into the afternoon on the road as the festival brings together more than 20 wineries, distilleries, food, art and music as you tip your hat off to this ‘money can’t buy experience’.

Vintage Festival Parade

Pack a picnic and join the locals lining the streets for this fun family day out, with floats decorated and presented by local businesses, wineries and community groups! A hallmark event since the second Vintage Festival, the Parade has been a proud Barossa tradition since the float procession was introduced in 1948. With Kerbside views across the 8km expanse of the parade route on the Barossa Valley Way, find your vantage point for spectating this show-stopper event guaranteed to entertain, amuse and delight.
