Big Family Weekend

Big family weekend

20–21 May 2017

A joyous, fun, BIG inclusive event that will span many and varied locations along North Terrace and a few to the side.

It’s a trail of art and wonder for children and their families over two days with shows, workshops, activities, exhibitions, eating, making, watching, laughing, thinking, chatting, questioning, dancing, singing and performances. There really is something for everyone.

Follow the trail for your age-group and discover an assortment of great event along the route. There will be age specific trail maps available on the day from all locations.


Join us in the Prince Henry Gardens (in front of Government House) and in front of Elder Hall for some amazing performances and workshops! Learn swing dancing with Swing Out Adelaide, get down with Indigenous Hip-Hop Projects, learn some yoga, laugh, sing, dance and applaud a range of amazing performers.

Full stage program available from April 2017.
