Managed Events

Events South Australia is responsible for the creation and development of nationally and internationally recognised events.
A designated event management team for each of these events works tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that these core events are continuously improved, with the aim that each will be even bigger and better than the last!
Events South Australia successfully manages six major events; the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, Adelaide Fashion Festival, Santos Tour Down Under, Tasting Australia, Adelaide 500 and Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

Bringing Events to South Australia

Events South Australia identifies and researches opportunities to attract and/or develop new and existing events and actively bids or negotiates for targeted events. Events South Australia takes a strategic approach to the development of the state’s event calendar. It seeks to complement the core listing of annual events on the calendar by securing additional one-off events. These are typically major profile or mass participation events. This helps to ensure a balance of activity across the year, utilise infrastructure and services and increase the city’s economic return and vibrancy.
