Welcome to our latest newsletter, the TiCSA Tourism Snapshot, for February 2023.
The kick-off of the Adelaide Fringe today signals the start of South Australia’s bumper festival season.
Over the next month, Fringe, the Adelaide Festival, Writers Week and WOMADelaide will be bringing vibrancy, visitors and economic benefit to our city and regions. Adelaide Fringe is truly a statewide festival in its reach and impact. Last year, this Tourism Award winning festival presented 138 events in 77 different regional venues and generated $74.9 million expenditure across South Australia.
I encourage everyone to get out and enjoy the Fringe and all great festivals in SA, as we recognise how important they are to both our visitors and local people.
