The South Australia’s History Festival is South Australia big month-long festival which showcases the State’s amazing history. And it gets bigger and bigger every year.

The Festival is presented by the History Trust of South Australia, it began its life as South Australia’s History Week back in 2004, and changed to a month-long event in 2011. This proved to be a good move, as it has grown in popularity every year since. And with over 600 events from 355 organisers in 2017 (you can read the report here) the interest from both organisers and attendees continues to grow.

Now the team behind South Australia’s History Festival have opened their website for applications for events for the 2018 event. So if you, your group, or organisation has something planned for May 2018, you can get it listed now.

The events don’t have to be in Adelaide. They welcome events from the Adelaide Hills, the Barossa and rural regions of the state, even Kangaroo Island or else where in the state. The more the merrier.

From talks and seminars, to guided walks, and bus tours. There’s workshops and exhibitions, open days at various places, even online digital events. Help showcase the State’s history, by holding an event.
