Published on Monday 20 November 2017

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 for next year is looking to be a crowd pleaser.

To be held on various Saturday nights during January and February, 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.

In 2018 we have outdoor movies, music, food and a range of events especially for kids - so there really is something for everyone.

And while food and refreshments will be available for purchase at some 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, and ‘Fork on the Road‘ returning to Kings Reserve and Thebarton Community Centre on Saturday 10 February.

The program is detailed below and will be updated as details are confirmed. Programs will also be delivered to households in West Torrens towards the end of December so look out for this in your letterbox!
