Spread the musical news!!!

We're back for a second year in a row with a Cultural Mosaic of the performing arts in a music festival in town honouring the legendary contributions of our very own Adeladie Hunter Hoodless.

ADDI Fest, hosted by Joan Minnery Enterprises in conjunction with the Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead, will rock an all-day event with live entertainment, on-site beverages and snacks, games, musicians, bands, dancers, singers and an all-day festival of community music and goodwill ambassadorship. All the while supporting Culture Days 2024 and helping to raise awareness towards the Historical Museum.
