The Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival is a unique South Australian event held over three days. Come along for a party atmosphere and sample exclusive beers and ciders, complemented by a juicy BBQ menu.

The festival is split into four sessions to suit your preferred mode of Beer & BBQ consumption. ABBF will again host the presentation of the Royal Adelaide Beer & Cider Awards and present various Masterclasses, the Up In Smoke BBQ Comp, a Hot Dog Eating Contest, the Chili-Wing-Off, and Live Tattooing.

This patriotic celebration showcases more than 50 local and national craft breweries, as well as some international exhibitors.The festival’s ambassador and feast curator Duncan Welgemoed will present his version of South African BBQ, alongside TV chef Matty Matheson and the legendary Chris Jarmer. Fancy Hank’s and Low and Slow will also be feeding the masses with traditional American-style slow cooked BBQ hits.

The main stage will feature a line-up of live acts on Friday and Saturday night, while DJs play the beer hall all weekend.

The festival is held in the historic brick cattle pavilion and on the showground lawns, with open bonfires throughout the outdoor areas. For further information and to purchase tickets, visit the Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival website.
