Fool’s Paradise | Victoria Square/Tarntanyangga | Adelaide Fringe 2024

Fool’s Paradise Returns to Adelaide Fringe for 2024 season.

Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square will host popular venue hub, Fool’s Paradise, for a second year running during the 2024 Adelaide Fringe Festival, with a bigger and better program!

Music events will welcome guests to Fool’s Paradise across the opening weekend, to accompany outdoor dining options from Asian to European. Bao Bao by the Filipino Project and Pizza Reggina will satisfy for bigger meals, while Smooth Operators offer smoothies and classic donuts will be an appealing dessert option.

Fool’s Paradise now has three venues, which will host 34 shows across the month and feature Melbourne-based circus group, Head First Acrobats, in multiple shows. The Vault (capacity of 400), The Bunker (200) and The Roundabout (100) will contribute to the area’s focus on circus and children’s performances.

Last year’s flying trapeze is getting an upgrade, to now feature a full rig with classes being held every day.

Busking will also return to the area, alongside scheduled live music acts, in the area that will now take up the whole southern side of the square.

For the kids, Dr Hubble, f*acts, Paper Trail and Mike Balloon are among the shows on offer, with at least four shows across each weekend making for a perfect Fringe day out for the family.
