Director of Gluttony, Elena Kirschbaum said, “After last year’s overwhelming success, we are thrilled to bring back Glenelg Winter Arts Festival with a fresh lineup of acts and entertainment. Festival-goers can expect the same signature atmosphere that made last year’s event so special, with even more surprises and delights in store. This year promises to be bigger, better, and more unforgettable than ever before!”

City of Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson said “Glenelg is perfectly positioned to host a winter festival once again, with so much to enjoy – before and after seeing a show.”

We cannot wait to welcome back crowds to the second edition of the Glenelg Winter Arts Festival which will again be Adelaide’s hottest event this July.

“It’s so easy to jump on a tram from the city and arrive in the heart of Glenelg at Moseley Square. Take a stroll over to Colley Reserve, grab a bite to eat along the way on Jetty Road and then enjoy a fantastic line-up of live shows including comedians, burlesque and circus performers. The thing I love most is that this is more than just an arts festival – it’s a place to make memories, escape the chill of winter with warm company and experience the best of Glenelg. It’s inclusive and accessible to everyone. This year, we have some new events too – free Teddy Bears Picnic and a Dogs Day Out. And as the performance space has been doubled this year, that means double the fun!” Mayor Wilson said.

Presented by Gluttony in partnership with the City of Holdfast Bay and Jetty Road, book your tickets now and be part of this exciting winter celebration!
