Adelaide Fringe is of course famous for it’s performances, shows and art installations BUT it’s also one such a great opportunity to get down to the city and try some new food flavours, some crazy treats or just a good old ice cream from one of the many many food trucks and vendors that set up for the month of Adelaide Fringe. It’s actually one of our Fringe highlights so we thought this year we’d share our favourite food-y finds.

Gang Gang

Make it a burger…but make it a bit Fringe-y. Find Gang Gang in Gluttony with their shiny new rebranded container (just look straight ahead as you come in the East Tce entry) and grab the yummiest burgers going around. Our kids loved The God’s Plan (classic cheeseburger) and I loved the Cardi B, which is chicken with slaw, avocado and other delicous things. YUM.

  • Kids are unpredictable - like many of the Fringe shows we've seen really. As much as I have fought it, I am ready to admit that I am at a stage in my life, with kids, where PLANNING is king. Attending events is no exception, so here is my guide to surviving a day at Adelaide Fringe with kids. Sort your transport or parking in advance. Weekends get particularly busy and opening night will also see some road closures around War Memorial Drive. Pre booking city car parks is about the smartest invention since the Rubik's Cube. Of course you can bus, train, tram, uber and taxi. Or ride a bike - but preferably a hipster bike - because FRINGE. For Wilson East End book here: Know where your show is. I recall my first Fringe. It wasn't that long ago and I made an assumption sillier than Mr Snotbottom him self, that it all happened in The Garden of Unearthly Delights. Nope. Fringe. Is. Huge. While the biggest hubs are in the East End of the CBD, venues are all over the place including some out in the suburbs and hills. Grab the Venue Map Here: Allow 30 mins…

  • Get away from the hustle and bustle of the big Fringe hubs this year and check out a show at Prompt Creative Centre – an accessible venue run for artists, by artists! Located in Pirie Street, they have a whopping ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY performances over the Adelaide Fringe season, including everything from kids shows, youth theatre, comedy, music, improv, cabaret, storytelling and more. Prompt Creative Centre is run by Libby Trainor Parker and Matthew Trainor (the team behind the shows Endo Days and Extra Curricular) and opened in late 2022. If you ever visited their previous venue, Vault 134, you’ll know exactly what expect from their new venture – a welcoming, inclusive space, abound with creativity and friendly faces (plus a bar!). “At Prompt, we offer a time and space for artists to create, converse, conduct and crash. We are artists as well, so we are here to support, advise, commiserate, celebrate and offer a safe environment,” Libby says. “Add to that the fabulous line up of funny, poignant, weird, wonderful, filthy, delightful shows we have for Fringe and beyond, and we are truly dedicated to embracing all the arts has to offer locally, nationally and internationally.” Star of SBS program Chopsticks or Fork?…
