May is the ultimate month for history lovers in South Australia, as that is when South Australia’s History Festival, (also known as “HISTORY MONTH”) is on.
Now in its 15th year, the Festival gets bigger and bigger, and this year is no different. With a giant program that is jam-packed with events, covering all corners of the State, there’s oodles for the history buff (and even those not so much into history) to enjoy.
From the 1st to the 31st of of May, the events keep coming. From Bus tours to Ghost tours. From Exhibitions, and Guided tours to Self-guided tours, Launches and Open days. There are Performances, Displays, Special events, Talks, Workshops and even Digital history.
Devonshire teas, photographic exhibitions, cemetery walks, heritage hikes, stories of the pioneers, old-time children’s games, colonial dances, a quiz night, art exhibitions, and everything in between. With over 600 events on throughout the month, all around the State … there really is something for everyone.
As an added bonus, April 28-29 is the Open Doors Weekend, and has about 50 events scheduled. So if you’re wanting to check out ‘behind the doors’ of places in Adelaide, as well as regional South Australia, check the program, and be sure to book in. Click here for the list of Open Doors events.
The big 56 page event booklet came out in the Advertiser on Saturday 14 April 2018, but if you missed it, you can go to numerous places around Adelaide, and pick up a copy. Or just head on over to the History Festival website, download a PDF copy, or simply look through all the events online.
The countdown is on … so get planning people. Many events you do need to book in for, so get looking and booking, as you’d hate to miss out.
