The Adelaide Showground is set to come alive once again this winter as the Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival returns with a bang from 12th – 14th of July, 2024, with a family and dog friendly session on Sunday 14th of July.

Headlining the festival’s family and dog-friendly session is none other than the beloved Peter Combe and his Newspaper Mama Band. Combe, an iconic figure in children’s entertainment, will bring joy to kids young and old with his catchy tunes and infectious energy.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. The festival boasts an action-packed weekend filled with live music, the largest lineup of barbecue offerings ever assembled, and a curated selection of beers from near and far. Families can expect an unforgettable experience as they explore the various activities and performances on offer.

For music lovers, the festival presents some of the biggest legends of Australian music, including the Australian Rock Collective (ARC), Bad // Dreems & Friends, and a host of emerging musical acts across four live music stages. From rock to punk to folk, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
