Free Shows in the Rastelli Tent

Along with amusement rides and daily games, a spectacular feature of Christmas Fun in the Square will be the striking red, green and white wooden Rastelli Tent! Just like your Santa stocking, expect to find a few surprises when you enter this unique venue which will host short, family-friendly performances by jugglers, acrobats, comedians and magicians. Shows will run across the day – all FREE!

Giant Christmas Tree & Miniature Ride-on Train

As always, Adelaide’s iconic Giant Christmas Tree will be shining bright in the Square from 1 December, but this year you can check it out in a fun new way. Hop aboard the miniature ride-on train which will circle the tree, giving your little ones a 360-degree view of all its bright lights and colourful decorations. No tickets required!

Children’s Workshops

If your kids like craft, they’ll love the free children’s workshops. They can create Christmas decorations to put up on the community trees in the Square (or to take home!), discover fun ways to wrap presents – even make snowflakes! A special reading space will also be set up where families can hang out together to share a Christmas tale or two!

Music & Roving Performers

Every day, roving performers will create a festive buzz throughout the Square with their colourful costumes and antics – and music will be EVERYWHERE! Featuring carollers, choirs and some of our finest local musicians – the live music line-up will have something for everyone to sing along or tap their toe to.

So, grab your kids, nieces, nephews and grandparents and go and explore this festive fairyland between 15 – 24 December!

Remember, entry is free and all workshops, activities and events are also free!

Tip: remember to pack some spare clothes for the kids as they may get wet in the water fountain!
