Cancelled, Postponed & Rescheduled Events in Adelaide due to Coronavirus | 2020

Adelaide Events 2020

Check to see which shows and events in Adelaide have been postponed, cancelled or rescheduled due to Coronavirus.

Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, the Australian Government has banned all non-essential indoor and outdoor gatherings (some exemptions permitted). Social distancing is urged and Australians should stay 1.5 metres away from each other. 

As a result, many upcoming events and shows in Adelaide have either been cancelled or postponed. We’ve put together a list of events so that you can keep updated, but please keep in mind the situation is changing constantly so please check with each event directly for up to date news.
