Campervan to Adelaide Festivals and Events

Adelaide CampervanAdelaide, South Australia has a population of over 1.1 million, making it smaller than other Australian cities like Sydney , Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth -- but it sure punches above its weight as far being a travel destination. It's a vibrant city with a cosmopolitan outlook and a ring of parks providing plenty of greenery. And events. Oh boy does Adelaide have events.

Sporting events in Adelaide include the Adelaide 500, known by its sponsored name, the Clipsal 500. It's a huge V8 Supercar race event -- attended by a massive 291400 spectators in 2008, the event also features concerts every night, air shows, and social events that bring in people from Adelaide, interstate and overseas. Next year’s Clipsal 500 V8 event in Adelaide will run from March 11-14.

It's a great city for arts festivals too. During the 1970s the Adelaide Festival of Arts and Fringe Festival were established, and over the years sister events have emerged, including the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Adelaide Film Festival, Adelaide Festival of Ideas, Adelaide Writers' Week and WOMADelaide, the WOMAD festival of international music and performance.
