Winter Weekends in The East End

Important Update: Due to the Government Lockdown Restrictions that currently apply to South Australia, the Winter Weekends event has been temporarily paused. The program will resume once the Lockdown has ended and will comply with any social distancing restrictions in place under the direction of SA Health.

Another season of Winter Weekends is here, warming up the streets and laneways of Adelaide’s East End!

Celebrate the colder months every Friday & Saturday night across July and August, as the sun goes down and the footpaths warm up with open fire pits and exciting activations.

Enjoy acoustic music by local musicians, roaming street performances by fire twirling artists and late night DJ’s to enhance your dining experience as the evening rolls on.

Vardon Avenue will transform into the ultimate winter dining destination, as the entire laneway comes alive with fire pits and an explosion of outdoor furniture positioned under the glittering festoon lights.

Discover the limited-time offerings of local businesses and indulge with mulled wine, themed cocktails and boozy hot chocolate as adjoining restaurants & bars gets creative with their seasonal menus.

Relax and unwind from 5pm till late as you embrace the cooler climate from the comfort of your table, with outdoor heating and shelter to keep you cosy as you dine.

The program then extends from Vardon Avenue to Rundle Street East from the 16th – 31st July, as Illuminate Adelaide unleashes across the street with vibrant lighting and artwork projections as part of the East End Echoes trail.
