Adelaide Fringe Registration Subsidy

Council will provide a 100% subsidy for standard registrations for Adelaide Fringe exhibitions and events held in the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. Artists do not need to live within the City of Port Adelaide Enfield, but must deliver their exhibition or event within the City. For performances with part of their season held outside the area, only the relevant proportion of the registration fee will be subsidised.

Eligible artists need to register with the Adelaide Fringe, but do not need to pay any registration fee. Adelaide Fringe will invoice the City of Port Adelaide Enfield directly. Contact Artists Services at the Adelaide Fringe on 08 8100 2022 if you need further clarification.

Details need to be sent to customer.service@portenf.sa.gov.au with "Fringe – Registration" in the subject heading.

All artists receiving support from the City of Port Adelaide Enfield are required to display the City of Port Adelaide Enfield logo on any relevant printed material. Contact customer.service@portenf.sa.gov.au for the logo and conditions of use.

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield will produce a PAE Fringe Guide featuring all exhibitions and events within the Council area.
