Port Festival

The Port Festival gives us all the opportunity to celebrate and enjoy some of the best of the west.

The Festival brings many visitors to Port Adelaide, and is a stimulus for a huge range of artistic endeavour and good old fashioned entertainment. It is also great for business, with many local enterprises reporting record trading levels. We’ve always had a strong sense of our own culture and identity, and that’s what the Festival helps to celebrate.

This festival captures the unique and eclectic spirit of the Port, and activates local iconic spaces.

The next Port Festival will be held in October 2015.  A suggestion by renowned maritime artist John Ford has been accepted as the theme for this year’s Port Festival – appropriately “Message in a Bottle”.

The dates have now been confirmed for Festival program applications, with registrations opening on Monday May 4 and closing on Monday 1 June.  Program registrations will be confirmed and notified on Monday 15 June.

The very popular Artists’ Markets are expanding in this year’s Festival with a new look and feel, with interactive experiences and more categories to be involved in. Applications for the Artists and Designers Markets open on Monday 4 May and close on Monday 29 June, with confirmation notified on Monday 13 July.
