Adelaide lucky dumpling market ozasia festival  

Brought to you by the team behind Adelaide Fringe venue Gluttony, the Lucky Dumpling Market was hugely popular last year and we expect it to be great again this year.

Play & Go’s Tips on what to take to the Market:

  • a debit or credit card, as all food, drink and merchandise purchases are via EFTPOS.
  • a refillable water bottle, to drink from the free water stations.
  • a picnic blanket – while there are plenty of tables and chairs, these are in high demand at peak times, but there is plenty of grass to sit on.
  • sun protection for during the day eg hats, shirts, sunscreen – while there are multiple shade structures (umbrellas over tables and a tent, Elder Park is in full sun during the day.
  • warm layers for the evenings – there is a cool breeze off the river.
  • It’s fenced all around but remember the river is nearby so keep an eye on kids.
  • Entry is FREE and bookings are not needed.
