7 Wonderful Things You Can Do In Adelaide This Weekend

Welcome to the weekend.

If you’re looking for something to do, here are some of our top recommendations on where to go, what to see, and what to look forward to this weekend in Adelaide.

1. Gathered Design Market

Gathered SA is back this weekend with their design market where you’ll be able to pick up plenty of sweet finds from talented teams and individuals. From clothing to crafts and plenty of food and drink to keep you fueled throughout the day, you’ll be sure to pick up something you love.

There are also a number of workshops on across the two days such as a Gin Infusion Masterclass. You’ll need to book ahead for these, which you can do here.

2. Coonawarra Celebrations

Coonawarra is celebrating all throughout October and this weekend they’ve got on a number of events worth the drive south. There are cheese and chocolate events, wine tasting experiences (obviously), vintage drops, walking trails to wineries, and a bit of music as well.

Check it all out here.

3. Mad Monkey Rum Rebellion

Mad Monkey Distillery is joining forces with Mexican food truck Señor Taco for a rum rebellion that’s taking over their outdoor space and turning it into a tiki paradise. It all starts at 3pm on Saturday with live music, feeds and plenty of rum.

Tickets include live music, corn ribs, a taco plate and a rum punch on arrival.

6. Umbrella Festival

South Australia’s open access live music festival presented by the not-for-profit organisation Music SA is on and we’re keen on helping celebrate SA’s awesome music scene.

The music events are diverse as they are far and wide (there are regional events too) with local, interstate and international artists across pop, rock, hip hop, punk, jazz, world music, metal, folk, electronic and more.

Umbrella Festival has been extended so make sure you hop across to the site to see what’s on and what’s coming up until October 17.

7. Paolo Sebastian Exhibition

One spectacular highlight at VOGUE Festival is the Paolo Sebastian Exhibition. In this free exhibition, you’ll meet designer Paul Vasileff and discover a display of his favourite gowns from past collections. This exclusive exhibition will transport you through ethereal and dreamy places, and shine a light on the importance of storytelling.

On top of that, you’ll meet Paul and receive a signed fashion sketch between 1pm and 3pm, every day during the festival.
