Historically a shooting festival, Schutzenfest goes back to its German roots with a traditional Vogel shoot, where celebrities will be given their first chance to fire a rifle.
There will be no shortage of opportunities for event-goers to immerse themselves in German culture, with slap dancing performances, cultural sites and souvenirs.
Beer will be flowing, and tastebuds are sure to be tantalised by authentic German food from more than 40 stalls offering food, beverages and merchandise.
You will be entertained by oompah bands, traditional dancing, DJs and cover bands. There will be face painting and rides for the children as well as dance workshops.
The Adelaide Schutzenfest is one of South Australia's most popular events and is the largest ethnic festival in the Southern hemisphere. Bring the whole family- children under 14 admitted free.
