Adelaide New Year’s Eve | Elder Park | 31 Dec 2016


Adelaide City Council’s free New Year’s Eve event is going to be the biggest party in town! All your party needs are covered with live music, fabulous food, children’s entertainment and of course, spectacular fireworks.

The atmosphere at Elder Park will be electric, with entertainment to suit the young and young at heart. The historic Rotunda will be in all its glory, bathed in light and providing a focal point for the live music. The night sky will light up with two rounds of show-stopping fireworks – one at the family friendly time of 9pm.

The event will include a family fairground on the western side of King William Road, with fun activities for kids and adults. There will be a kid’s street theatre stage program, an array of food stalls offering a global cuisine and roving entertainers. A variety of beverages will be available for purchase from one of the three Beer Gardens.

No BYO alcohol and for the comfort of party-goers this is a non-smoking event.
