Adelaide Fringe Festival

Circus Tent at the Adelaide Fringe Festival

During the months of February and March, the city of Adelaide becomes a mecca for all things fun and creative. There seems to be a festival dedicated to every art form, catered to any and all tastes- the Adelaide Film Festival, WOMAdelaide (World of Music, Arts, and Dance), Cellar Door Wine Festival, Adelaide Fringe, and even the Adelaide Kite Festival. Why everything seems to happen all within these two months of the year is beyond me, but Drew and I have been taking advantage of it nonetheless!

Last night, Kylie, Drew, and I ventured down to the Adelaide Fringe Festival to catch a couple shows and some dinner. The beauty of the Adelaide Fringe (a sister to the Edinburgh Fringe if you’re familiar with that) is that you can pay as little as $10 to see a show- whether it be comedy, puppetry, music, cabaret, or circus acts. The acts tend to stray a little left of center, and range from hilarious to completely bizarre. We also took a stroll through the Garden of Unearthly Delights– an area of parkland that they transform into the epitome of a creepy carnival. It was pretty amazing. I am officially obsessed with the Fringe!

 

Drew was called onstage and did an amazing job. So funny!
