Guide: Adelaide Christmas events 2020

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and yep, the decorations are going up in Woolworths and the giant tree has arrived in Vic Square, so the festive season has officially started.

Let’s be honest, its been a pretty rough year, and we all need a bit of festive spirit to end it on a high!  Whilst some Christmas events usually hosted in Adelaide have been cancelled in 2020, there’s still a jolly good selection to choose from, with many events changing up their usual proceedings in order to make it possible to have socially distanced Christmas festivities.

Here’s your guide to Adelaide Christmas events in 2020.

If you have an event planned for the festive season you’d like listed, please let us know the details!
