If you have stocked up on layers upon layers of sweaters, jumpers, gloves, and beanies, then it’s time to put them to good use by heading the winter wonderland in Port Adelaide.
Back for a bigger and better year, Winterfest has been set up in the iconic Harts Mill (on Mundy Street) and everywhere you look, there’s something exciting, fun, and interactive for adults, kids, and families alike! Surrounded by a picturesque view of the Port River and with lots of winter breeze adding to the inviting ambience of this annual festival, the team at Renewal SA has outdone themselves to present with an incredible, family-friendly event, with the hopes that it will help boost the economic development of The Port.
Grab those skates and maybe even some penguin helpers to help you make the most out of the wondrous experience that is ice skating! This is such a fun way to learn a new sport and take in the views of The Port River that engulf the rink in all its glory.
A market space by Posh Markets has also been stocked with a number of SA-owned businesses, such as Blush & Co., Wili Heat Bags, and Luna & Luxe, Hunt Jewellery, and Primrose Hill Set Candles (to name a few), who have just the right accessories to add to your wardrobe and home – in terms of quality, value, and aesthetic!
On a tight budget? Never fear, because there are a ton of free activities, which include market hopping, live music and entertainment, and roving performers who will leave you breathless with awe. There’s also a snow lounge, which can provide a space for individuals to unwind and relax from the social atmosphere of the event.
Adding to the versatility of the event this year, the popular Ice Cube is the place to be! Hosting an array of workshops, such as the Choir Workshops and The Art of a Natural Christmas (for adults), and craft activities, such as Cookie Creations and Little Picasso (for kids), along with live acts, Long Table Lunches by local chefs to give you a taste of a hearty winter meal, Gospel brunches, tastings and so much more, there’s something for everyone in this quaint area of the event.
With indoor and outdoor spaces that provide plenty of warmth and comfort, through their smoky fire pits and tartan blankets, not to mention the delicious options of food and drink (coffee, Gin, or mulled wine, anyone?), guests can be rest assured that they’ll be kept nice and toasty during the crisp evenings down by The Port.
Winterfest in Port Adelaide will be running throughout the school holidays this year, so make sure you gather your friends and family members and head down to the Port to treat yourself to a seriously awesome time in this gorgeous winter wonderland!
