The first month of spring introduces many popular events returning to Adelaide. We have Oz Asia and the new Good Fortune Markets, The Color Run, The Royal Adelaide Show, and The City To Bay Fun Run.
September is hailing some one-off events that won't get enough hype, so here's a guide to Adelaide September events that you may not have heard of:
Famed ex-Masterchef contestant and born Adelaidian, Poh Ling Yeoh is teaming up with the crew at Jamface to create a hearty, memorable and delicious event at the Barossa Gourmet Weekend. Over two days, Poh and her team will be serving Naples-style pan-fried pizza and Poh's paella at the Lindsey Wine Estate. Sunday will feature SA pop up record store "Crackle and Pop" hosting a music session.

When: September 3rd 9am - September 4th, 5pm.
Tickets available on Facebook.
Following on from their collaboration with Poh, Jamface will be hosting an exclusive "Crunch Club", featuring a menu created by Poh, which highlights South East Asian flavours, and fresh Central Market produce. More details coming soon.

A Night Of Law and Order SPU @ Ancient World
"In the nightclub justice system, antisocial offenders are considered especially heinous. In Adelaide City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Party Unit. These are their stories. DUN DUN."
Adelaide's first Law and Order themed party, the SPU event will include black lights, crime scenes, forensics, a judge, perps and justice (not too sure if this a joke, but we hope not.) Dressing up is encouraged.
Where: 116a Hindley St, Ancient World

Celebrating the beginning of spring, this event features all of our favourite Adelaide food trucks, a selection of local craft beers, wines, ciders, entertainment, and enough chocolate for you to eat your weight in it.

When: September 18th, 12pm-4pm
Hosted by: Fork On The Road
