Fringe in the Flinders

The Fringe treks to the outback for Fringe in the Flinders

Get ready for the inaugural Fringe in the Flinders to celebrate the best of the famous Adelaide Fringe at Quorn and Hawker on March 18 and 19 respectively for an action-packed weekend of music, circus, comedy, aerial shows, street performances and much more.

To be held at Quorn’s newly opened Performing and Visual Arts Precinct (March 18) and Hawker’s Flinders Food Co (March 19), Fringe in the Flinders is the perfect way to experience the magic of Fringe in a bite-sized afternoon thanks to Fringe and arts festival identities, Bamboozled Productions, who have curated the Fringe in the Flinders program.

Bamboozled Productions’ Louise Clarke says: “Fringe in the Flinders is the ultimate way to experience the brilliance that is the Fringe Festival in just an afternoon in Quorn or Hawker.

“We will take everything that makes the Fringe and Festival such a magical month and transport that feeling from Adelaide to the Flinders Ranges for a weekend of great fun, dizzying stunts and fantastic music.

“We can’t wait to bring this event to the Flinders, and deliver an arts weekend to remember at two spectacular parts of the state.”

Bamboozled has been engaged by The Flinders Ranges Council to bring this exciting event to the region. Mayor, Ken Anderson is looking forward to utilising the new precinct and bringing the festival to town.

“This will be the first event to utilise the new Performing and Visual Arts Precinct in Quorn and will take full advantage of the amazing festival space including the stage, paved and grassed areas,” Mayor Anderson says.

Fringe in the Flinders will ensure an action and entertainment packed weekend in the region, and brings the Fringe back to the northern regional areas.

“It’s very exciting as a small Council to be able to host this event and make it accessible for those that are unable to make it to Adelaide as they still get to experience the event and world class acts,” Mayor Anderson says.

Bamboozled will be bringing their boutique 90-seat circus tent, The Little Palais, to Fringe in the Flinders to house short circus shows from 5pm-10pm on Saturday 18 March, while outdoor stages will host music, comedy, circus and acrobatic performances.

Fringe in the Flinders will be South Australia’s arts hub on the weekend of March 18 and 19, attracting visitors from nearby towns and surrounding areas to engage with a fantastic weekend of festival fun at Quorn and Hawker.

Fringe in the Flinders is made possible through funding from the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) in partnership with the Australian Government. The FRRR’s vision is a vibrant, resilient and revitalised remote, rural and regional Australia, and Fringe in the Flinders will certainly deliver on that.
