Festival Description

The OzAsia Festival is presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre on an annual basis. This unique event on the Australian arts calendar attracts more than 20,000 patrons. The program features some of the most talented artists from the region and around the world, including China, Japan, UK, Korea, Indonesia, India, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, along with Australians who identify with an Asian cultural heritage and collaborative work between Australian and Asian artists. There is a rich and diverse range of performances including music, dance, theatre, visual art, film, food and free events, a number of Australian exclusives and a world premiere.

The Adelaide Festival Centre’s OzAsia Festival includes the ever-popular and spectacular Moon Lantern Festival along the banks of the River Torrens. The Moon Lantern parade commences at twilight with a number of schools and community groups illuminating Elder Park with hand-made lanterns. There will be performances by local community groups, as well as artists from the Festival. Enjoy some delicious Asian cuisine, an array of stalls offering horoscope readings, workshops and crafts, and purchase your own lantern.
