The Adelaide Schützenfest is one of South Australia’s most popular annual events and in 2014 will celebrate its 51st anniversary. Adelaide Schützenfest is the largest ethnic festival in the Southern hemisphere and an opportunity to immerse yourself in German culture, with authentic German food from more than 40 stalls, slap dancing performances, cultural sites, souvenirs and much more. Translated from German Schutzenfest means ‘Shooting Festival’ and goes back to its German roots with a traditional Vogel shoot.
Schützenfest is a festival for the whole family to enjoy. There’s children’s entertainment such as the popular Kids Zone that includes free face painting, jumpy castles & teacup rides. Children 14 years and under are free.
