For the little ones there is a huge program of events. From circus shows and interactive art exhibitions to theatre and musical performances. They’ll have a ball dressing up dancing along to old-time hits at the 80’s Kids Disco. For those that are a fan of pirates, be sure to take them along to ‘Arrrr we there yet?’ for pirate themed circus mayhem. Or for an afternoon enjoying a classic, they’ll be enthralled listening as Mr Badger tells the tale of the Wind in the Willows.

So the parents’ don’t miss out, the Adelaide Fringe Festival has planned out family friendly events, meaning those with little ones can enjoy just as much of the action. The Huggers Show is perfect for those bringing the kids along, an afternoon of delightfully immature comedy and cabaret, this is one not to be missed. There is also Laugh with Baby, a comedy show where interruptions from the younger members of the audience are welcomed and become a part of the show.
If you feel like a special ‘Parent’s Night Out’ speak with reception at your hotel to organise a babysitter for the night. Our top pick of events to attend are the Deevine Degustation, where live performance is thoughtfully paired with food and wine for an immersive dining experience or the Little Rundle Street Party, where you’ll enjoy unique art and delicious food and a good dance to live music.
As the accommodation partner of The Fringe Festival, stay at either Mantra on Frome or Mantra Hindmarsh Square, you’ll be in the heart of the action and will enjoy some extra little Fringe goodies.
