Adelaide Fringe Registration

Council will provide 100% subsidy for a standard registration for 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 events which are partially held outside the area, the relevant proportion of the registration fee will be subsidised.
Please register your event with the Adelaide Fringe and send the details to with “Fringe – Registration” in the heading. Adelaide Fringe will invoice the City of Port Adelaide Enfield directly. Contact Monica at the Adelaide Fringe on 08 8100 2022 if you need further clarification.

SALA Festival

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield is proud to be involved in the annual SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival by supporting and promoting emerging and professional artists conducting events or exhibitions within the Council area. Council is assisting artists to take part in the SALA Festival by fully subsidising standard artist registrations.

Eligible artists need to register with SALA, but do not need to pay any registration fee – unless they wish to opt for a premium registration. The City of Port Adelaide Enfield has an arrangement with SALA to pay fees directly.
If artists have already registered with SALA and paid their fee, they can send an electronic copy of their receipt, along with a completed SALA 2017 –
