West Torrens Christmas Fare

Published on 06 October 2022



West Torrens will be a hive of colour, fun and activity this festive season as we bring you great West Torrens Christmas Fare with a range of free family events in December. The festivities will kick off on Sunday 27 November when the 2022 Riverbank Christmas Display is turned on by one lucky child.

The 'West End Brewery Christmas Lights' have long been an iconic South Australian Christmas tradition along the riverbank on the corner of Port Road and Adam Street, Thebarton. Early in 2022 our Council reached an agreement with brewing company Lion that we would continue the annual Riverbank Christmas Display following the closure of Lion's West End Brewery at the end of 2021.

We are inviting one lucky child to turn on the iconic Riverbank Christmas Display lights on Sunday 27 November 2022. The family of the winning child will enjoy a $150 dining experience at a local West Torrens business before embarking on a money-can't-buy tour of the Riverbank Christmas Display and turning on the 2022 lights.
Competition closes midday Thursday 17 November. 


For the first 3 Sundays in December, Council will host free children's activities, entertainment and live music across the Holland Street Bridge, adjacent to the Riverbank Christmas Display.

All events are within easy walking distance of the Riverbank Christmas Display.
