Summer Festival 2022 | City of West Torrens | CANCELLED in 2022

Welcome to Summer Festival 2022 – CANCELLED

Sadly, the City of West Torrens Summer Festival has been cancelled in 2022.

Editors update Wednesday 5 January 2022: 

The 2022 Summer Festival program and face-to-face school holiday programs are being cancelled this year due to concerns around the increase in COVID-19 cases, as well as State restrictions.
Never fear though! Staff will be channelling their efforts to provide the community with a two and a half day ‘family style’ event the first weekend of April, with events planned from Friday night 1 April – Sunday 3 April, culminating with the Fire and Spice Festival.
Council’s Executive Management Team met on Tuesday 4 January 2022 to consider the current COVID impact on the City of West Torrens, particularly with regard to community events, and agreed that in the best interests of community safety that our immediate public events should be cancelled.

Explore the program below and start planning your next great adventure in West Torrens.

On arrival, you’ll first need to check-in to Kings Reserve using the South Australian Government’s official COVID SAfe Check-In process. This involves scanning a QR code, which you’ll find displayed at each entry point to Kings Reserve, and at the entrance to Thebarton Community Centre. You’ll be asked to provide proof of check-in (ie. show the ‘green tick’ on your mobile) before entering the venue. If you don’t have a mobile, our friendly team will direct you to where you can complete a manual check-in form.

You’ll also be asked to show your vaccination certificate on entry. Your vaccination certificate can be linked to your MySA GOV account, or you can download a copy of your certificate to your mobile. Alternatively, you can present a hard copy of your vaccination certificate.

To provide confidence and ensure a safe environment for you, our patrons, and our staff, we have a comprehensive COVID Management Plan in place. Approved by the South Australian Government, our Plan includes the following measures:

Physical distancing protocols, including guest traffic management and safe venue entry
COVID Safe food and beverage service
Contactless payments where possible
Contact tracing protocols
COVID related signage across the venue
