This event has many events on every night throughout the festival with many free shows for the budget minded. The free Garden of Unearthly delights is a must see and with so much to offer would be the ultimate starting point for a fringe experience.

Lots of fun!!!!!!!!!!! Mar 13, 2010
Driving through the city of Adelaide today I saw something in Victoria Square that is not normally there. However, at this time of the year, the unexpected is the normal. Luckily I had my camera with me and was able to take a couple of photos as we drove past. That is why I have now decided to do this review as an explanation.

The Adelaide Fringe festival is an arts festival held annually in Adelaide South Australia.

It is the Southern hemispheres largest arts event and the second largest fringe festival in the world.

Before 2007, the Adelaide Fringe was a biennial event, occuring in even numbered years to coincide with the Adelaide Festival of Arts.

Over 24 days and nights in February and March, there are a massive selection of shows. i.e. Caberet, comedy, dance, theatre, music and visual arts events. These shows can be held in wierd and eccentric venues, or just about anywhere.

Highlights - Opening night party, parade, concert and street theatre. The "Garden of Unearthly Delights" and Fringe family weekend.

As an open access festival, anyone can perform or apply by paying a one off registration fee the the Fringe as well as pay the presentation costs of their perfomance.

The first Adelaide Fringe was held in 1960. This was because some artists took exception to the exclusion of many artists from the Adelaide Festival of Arts, and staged their own event.

That was a beginning and has now grown and continues to grow.

Compared to other Fringe Festivals, the Adelaide Fringe is second in size only to the Edinburgh Fringe
