Description :

The Adelaide Fringe Festival is a festival of independent arts with a program that spans all art forms. The Festival evolved in the 1970s as a reaction to the mainstream Adelaide Festival of Arts. Originally a biennial event, running parallel to the Festival of Arts over three weeks during March in 'even' years, the Fringe has been held each year since 2007.

The Festival is usually opened with a popular street parade and a vibrant atmosphere is created in the streets of Adelaide throughout the Festival's duration. A highlight of the Fringe Festival is the use of innovative venues such as the Garden of Unearthly Delights, the Spiegeltent and Red Square. Past performers at the Adelaide Fringe Festival include Ross Noble, the Three Canadians, Arj Barker, Bob Downe, Merrick and Rosso, Shooglenifty, Musica da Camera, Monsieur Camembert, Taikoz, the Happy Sideshow and the Sydney Aerial Theatre.
