Gawler Fringe

Gawler Fringe - Live, Embrace, Enjoy Local


The Gawler Fringe Opening Event was held in Walker Place from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 February, 2018.

With a huge, jam packed program of entertainment, an estimated crowd of 6000 people created a hive of activity in Walker Place across the weekend-long event.

Friday afternoon saw the official opening of the event. A variety of local solo performers and some quality bands kept the crowd entertained throughout the afternoon and evening. The action continued at night fall, when rock legend, Dave Gleeson performed to a packed-out crowd with local musos, Crafty and the Shindiggers.

Saturday was filled with back to back performances by community groups, bands, duos and soloists covering a multitude of genres. There was more fantastic night time entertainment with a performance by Nuvo followed by a booming performance from Zkye and the guyZ.

Sunday was all about the kids with a fun and interactive Storytime session facilitated by the Gawler Public Library. Sunday also saw several of our local schools showcasing their musical talents, followed by plenty more local acts. The weekend was wrapped up with the ever popular Open Mic Session.

The Gawler Fringe Opening Event definitely highlights what Gawler does best; local musos and performers, a relaxed family-friendly environment, food and drinks from Gawler’s local businesses and service clubs, Kids Zone and activities, all mixed with our friendly small town vibe.
