Fat Tuesday


Celebrated all over the world, Fat Tuesday (aka Mardi Gras) (aka Shrove Tuesday) is all about music, parades, picnics and excitement. So, on Friday Feb 17 we're bringing the lights, sound and pizazz of the mardi gras carnival over from New Orleans and plonking it in the heart of East End Adelaide!

For the second year in a row, NOLA Adelaide are turning all of Vardon Ave into a New Orleanean French Quarter for the Opening Night of the Adelaide Fringe! Head down to hear live jazz bands and NOLA DJ sets from Runebilly Rattle & Adam Page, creole food and an authentic Cocktail bar from 5pm.


- Southern Comfort NOLA Cocktail Bar

- Pirate Life Brewing

- Mother Vine's Mouthwatering Mothergumbo!

- El Choto Paella Catering's joyous jumbalaya

- East End Cellars & BRKLYN food stalls and more

Supported by Splash Adelaide, Southern Comfort, Pirate Life, The Pop-Up Co. & Adelaide Fringe
