The Best Streets for Trick or Treat in Adelaide

Please make sure to only knock on houses displaying a Trick or Treaters welcome sign. Be respectful to those not wanting to participate.

 Trick or Treat Ettiquette – The scary seven

  1. Halloween is not compulsory. If you hate it, and you don’t want to participate that’s more than fine. Turn your front light off and post a friendly note on the door letting people know not to knock. Just don’t poo poo on the people who think it’s fun (like us)

  2. As above, please respect those houses not participating and please remember your manners!
  3. Kids, please trick or treat in a group. It’s way more fun and way more safe!
  4. Let’s tone down the sex and turn up the scare for the costumes. Try and be an example for the kids, flash the peeling zombie skin coming off your face rather than boobs and bums!
  5. Offer wrapped lollies and chocolates. A bowl of unwrapped lollies with a thousand kiddy hands passing through it is a whole nightmare of it’s own.
  6. Go easy on the healthy “treats” It’s trick or TREAT not trick or sultana.
  7. Have fun! Don’t feel pressure to buy the most expensive costume – have fun making one at home

  • Illuminate Adelaide is a newly announced major winter festival that will run for the first time over two weeks in July 2021, with the hope of becoming an international draw card for our fine city every winter. Confirmed across 2 weeks (and 3 weekends) Illuminate Adelaide will light up our city from 16th of July through to 1st of August. Supported by the company behind WOMAD and our State Government and set to be curated by the local and knowingly talented Rachael Azzopardi and Lee Cumberldge, we should expect nothing but the highest quality light and art installations through out the Adelaide city streets buildings and laneways. Think North Terrace in years gone by over the Fringe Festival on steroids, with music, dance performances and other immersive technologies. Adelaide has summer events nailed and at a capacity for our personal calendars. How good it is to see investment in the arts in a month that is not already 'mad'? Our reputation as the 'festival state' does fall down a bit over the winter months. Wondering what's in store? Well we can tell you it's sure to be an epic event! There will be a mix of free events as well…

Here in Adelaide we are so lucky to have so many fantastic markets to choose from so we've gathered up the ones we know about and added them all to this page. It's updated constantly with new markets added all the time so make sure you check back each weekend to find out where your local market is, or discover a new Adelaide market to check out this weekend!

  • Children and families hungry for arts experiences will be treated to a feast of entertainment and excitement at DreamBIG Children’s Festival happening at the Adelaide Festival Centre from 19-29 May 2021 More than 300 artists will present hundreds of performances across the festival, with families invited to explore 14 shows, four online experiences and more than 20 free activities listed below.
