Enlighten Adelaide Festival 2018 - Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th July 2018

at the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, 10am-5pm


Enlighten Adelaide – the “feel good” Festival and the
Riverland Wellness Festival are SA’s leading, quality health and well-being festivals

We’re excited to announce a NEW VENUE space next year – still at the Adelaide Convention Centre, our Venue Partner again, but much more easily accessible and visible.

Simply enter off North Terrace, come straight up the escalator and into the current main reception area, and the exhibition halls J & K overlooking North Terrace are directly on the left. 




Easy to get to by train, bus or tram and if you’re driving in, then take advantage of the special festival car parking discounted rate of $10 for the day in the North Terrace or Riverbank Car Park (usually $29 for the day).

There will be more new additions to the festival next year including more food and drink options, a Kids Corner, and more.

We’ll keep updating this page as planning progresses and follow us on facebook for more information www.facebook.com/enlightenadelaide.

Enlighten Adelaide is a unique South Australian community of like-minded health professionals and practitioners who provide a quality and professional service or product in the health and well-being industry. The festival provides an opportunity for local businesses to showcase their products and services in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in one convenient location.

The annual Enlighten Adelaide Festival was created in 2011 by Sue Shaw, Festival Director and owner of Shara Sanctuary & Retreat, Centre for Health & Well-being (www.sharasanctuary.com.au). Sue has over 27 year’s experience in the corporate and not-for-profit sector and an extensive background in event management, marketing, advertising, promotion and media, ensuring that all aspects of the festival from concept to completion are covered.

The festival has grown to become one of South Australia’s most respected, professional and quality festivals and has also branched out to the country region with the Riverland Wellness Festival held in Renmark every year.

Brand South AustraliaWe are a proud South Australian small business that actively promotes all the wonderful regions of SA by having our festivals at unique and iconic venues throughout SA and working in partnership with other SA businesses.

The “Tree of Life” logo, created by local artist Bec Callabro from A Blissful Existence, represents the seeding and growth of a new way to live, that supports one another instead of being in competition with each other. The branches are an extension of the people who are involved including the event planning team, exhibitors, participants, volunteers, sponsors and visitors from all over Australia.


We welcome the local community to come and experience something new and learn about natural therapies, exercise, nutrition, and other tools to help them make healthier choices and live a more balanced life.

We offer a unique and exclusive Day Spa Room where visitors can experience a wellness treatment in the luxury of a more private and quiet setting. We run FREE Workshops and Come n Try Sessions throughout the weekend of the festival, provide a healthy Pop Up Cafe and have live sacred music performed by local musicians that uplift with their music.
