After a successful winter season at Alpine Winter Village earlier this year, The Social Creative are up to their old tricks with the creation of their newest Adelaide festival. Since their first endeavor showcasing the Royal Croquet Club at the Adelaide Fringe in 2014, The Social Creative have only sky rocketed as they take Adelaide’s festivities scene by storm.
Good Fortune is their newest festival collaboration, spanning out in Elder Park beside the Torren’s river in Adelaide’s CBD. Good Fortune takes part of OzAsia Adelaide’s biggest Asian arts and culture festival. With the celebration of OzAsia’s 10th anniversary, 47 major acts and 330 artists will be showcased from September 17th-2nd of October.
While Good Fortune runs from the 21st of September-1st October, this kaleidoscope of Asian culture invites you in for not only drinks and aesthetics, but also caters to a wide selection of food from across the continent. Vietnamese Laundry, Beyond India, Mai Kitchen and Pun Thai are just to name a few of the exquisite food vendors available throughout the festival.
With various stages found throughout the space, acts vary from local dj’s to international headliners including The Ashton shuffle, Ngaiire and YEO.
Different bars have been spread out across the grounds suited to each country including India, China and Japan. An array of activities is provided including Henna, as well as market stalls set up beside the riverbank. Sculptures, Art instillations and innovative architectural design encapsulate all that is Good Fortune as it brings Asian Culture to life. Do yourself a favor and head down to Good Fortune fresh dumplings, music and a cultural awakening.
