The Urban Picnic brings new food and wine festival back to the Eastern suburbs

The Urban Picnic is set to make its first appearance when it lands at Linde Reserve in Stepney this Friday and Saturday!

From Peter Combe, to Forage Supply Co to Adelaide Gin and a number of hidden east Adelaide gems, this is the place to be this sunny weekend. There will be kids’ entertainment and workshops across the two-day festival.

Father Christmas will also make an appearance on the Norwood Christmas Pageant Day – a perfect family outing.

Sam Worrall-Thompson is known for projects including the annual beachside festival The Sailing Club, popular Magill eatery Fine and Fettle and Kitchen and Catering by Sam.

“I’ve wanted to explore the event space in Adelaide for a while now. This was a natural evolution of my existing ventures and experience from The Sailing Club.”

The Urban Picnic confirms Pawn Wine Co, Little Bang Brewery, Forage Supply Co, Adelaide Gin, Brascos Pizza and Hygge Studio as part of the line-up. Music will be curated by Wasabi Entertainment.

“This is an exciting opportunity to showcase well-known food and beverage businesses in South Australia as well as highlighting some hidden Eastern suburb gems,” Sam said.

The Urban Picnic will also take a considered approach to create a sustainable event.

“We are working together with the City of Norwood Payneham and St Peters Council to deliver an eco-friendly, plastic free event.”

“We have asked that our food vendors come to the party with biodegradable packaging and serve ware and there won’t be a plastic cup or straw in sight.”

“Kids activities and entertainment will be featured heavily. This is an all-in, family event. The Urban Picnic will also include local business market stalls for those who are looking to get ahead with their Christmas shopping.”

“This is something to really look forward to. Everyone starts to get into the swing of the festive season in November when the weather warms up.”

“What better way to spend the day than relaxing in a park with a picnic rug and assortment of food and drinks while the kids play nearby.”


The Pawn Wine Co, Little Bang Brewing Company, Forage Supply Co, Adelaide Gin, Brasco Pizzaria and Hygge Studio will all feature among the market stalls, and iconic children’s entertainer Peter Combe will be playing bangers such as Spaghetti Bolognaise and Wash Your Face With Orange Juice live.

Festivities kick off at 4pm on Friday night. Dogs are welcome. ?
