Summer Festival 2018 | City of West Torrens
To be held on various Saturday nights during January and February 2018, the Summer Festival provides events for children, adults, families and friends and as they are FREE, you don’t have to worry about it hitting your hip pocket.
The 2018 program features outdoor movies, music, food and a range of events especially for kids – so there really is something for everyone.
The rush of the Christmas and New Year period can be exhausting, so why not relax, unwind and have some fun at the West Torrens’ Summer Festival? In 2018 the Festival will celebrate 10 years of providing free fun for local residents and visitors and the line-up is looking to be a crowd pleaser.
And while food and refreshments will be available for purchase at Festival events, people are welcome to bring their own, along with blankets and chairs to help make the evening truly relaxing.
Highlights of the 2018 program include:
- The two stage multicultural festival event ‘All together now’ on Saturday 27 January
- Thebartonia! street party at The Wheatsheaf Hotel and Albert Road on Saturday 3 February and
- ‘Fork on the Road‘ returning to Kings Reserve and Thebarton Community Centre on Saturday 10 February
